Actress, Iyabo Ojo is ranting over an allegedly accrued personal income tax of N38 million. The tax was slammed on her by the Lagos Inland Revenue Service.
She ranted in a long post on Instagram – which has now been deleted – as well as a picture of the tax papers. Ojo says she’s currently contemplating shutting down her Fespris chain of businesses.
The ‘Arinzo’ star says she has struggled to make little or no profit from her businesses; but now is being slammed with the outrageous tax papers.
The single mother also tagged the Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu in the post. She wondered how the tax officials arrived at the sum for her Personal Income Tax.
