Now  it's the turn of self-employed professionals .

In interview, Chief Revenue Officer of GRA, Theophilus Gaskin said, " We want to send out this strong warning to all  professionals that the task- force will clamp-down on them if they do not pay up their tax obligations. We issued the warning from the beginning of this month, and I think we all have seen the results. Now, we are telling all private professionals, artisans and self-employed people to pay up all their tax obligations,  otherwise we will sanction them."

Mr. Gasking added " The task-force will go to a lot more business sites to check their the tax-payment situation. This is a promise"
