By its establishment, it will become a household name in all the local government areas, that a specific project be mapped out by the federal Government for the utilization of the money realized from the Added Tax: that a specific account be opened into which the money realized will be paid instead of through the central Bank; and that a special Board be established for the sharing of the money realized.

SUMMARY OF FINDINGS, CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Value Added Tax (VAT) is a system of tax recently introduced in Nigeria, which is based on imposition, and charging 5 percent tax on certain goods and services imported or produced locally in Nigeria. The idea of introducing Value Added Tax in Nigeria came from the report of the study groups set up by the Federal Government in 1991 to review the entire Tax System.
Value Added Tax was proposed and a committee was set up to carry out feasibility studies on its implementation. In January 1993 government agreed to introduce Value Added Tax by the middle of the year and it was later shifted to 1st September, 1993. Value Added Tax is a replacement of the existing sale’s Tax, which has been in operation under Federal Government Legislated Degree N0. 7 of 1986.
In some advanced countries of the world, this system of taxation had been in operation and its enormous benefits being harvested. These countries are United States of America Britain, China and a host of others. Nigeria on her own wants to take the bull by the horn by introducing value added tax like other benefiting countries earlier mentioned above despite all pitches that may appear to impede the good intentions of government to introduce and implement the system.
The value added tax system has been introduced and made to get its location offices in all the 36 states of the Federation and Abuja.
