Nollywood star actress, Iyabo Ojo, has appealed to the Lagos State government over N38 million tax debt levied on her by the state’s tax authority, Lagos State Inland Revenue Service (LIRS).
The beautiful thespian, in an Instagram post, had lamented the massive accrued income tax slammed on her by the agency wondering how she was expected to pay the huge sum from her meager earnings from acting and running a restaurant.
Iyabo, who stressed that she was struggling to make ends meet acting and running Fepris, an upscale business outfit on the Island comprising a restaurant, spa, salon and facials, also threatened to shut her businesses if government fails to reconsider the tax demand.
“It’s so sad that I may have to finally close down my business soon. Because I don’t even know how or where to start this negotiation with Lagos State from. I’m still struggling with making profit, after paying rent, salaries, maintenance, electricity, local & state govt taxes in different categories & levy, I hardly make little or no profit,” the actress had posted in an SOS to Lagos State governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
