What We Do

LIRS is the major funding arm of the Lagos State Government charged with the responsibility of collecting taxes and other revenues. Over the years, LIRS has increased the State’s Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) by executing various pioneering programs and implementing strategies which have positively impacted revenue generation and collection. The IGR had gradually moved from a monthly average of about N 11.3 Billion Naira in 2009 to approximately N 32 Billion Naira in 2019, thereby making Lagos State less dependent on proceeds from Federation Account / Federal Allocation. As Lagos State moves towards meeting the needs of a mega city, LIRS continues to position itself as a major funding arm of the state government by putting in place structures that will ensure collection of the proper amount of revenue at the least cost
