Edo State Internal Revenue Service, (EIRS) has introduced the use of Revenue Scratch Cards to simplify tax payment for owners of businesses particularly those in the informal sector.

The introduction of Revenue Scratch Cards, is part of the Edo Revenue Administration System (ERAS) mobile payment solution which caters for individual businesses, ensures financial inclusion of the informal sector by recognizing each taxpayer who cannot obtain a tax clearance documentation.

With the use of the revenue scratch card, taxpayers get instant notifications and receipts on transactions made. It further enables taxpayers make payments from the comfort of their business premises which eliminates waste of time and unnecessary bank queues.

Individual taxpayers are expected to purchase the face value of the Revenue Scratch Cards from EIRS licensed and approved dealers and vendors.

Taxpayers are enjoined to always ensure their purchased cards are processed by approved and designated Revenue Collectors with a unique Point of Sale (PoS) device.

For issues that may arise in the cause of administering the revenue scratch card, such should be directed to the Revenue Service Head Office or call 0813 097 0146 or send email to: info@eirs.gov.ng
