          The research reviewed at some literature that has some degree of relevance to the subject matter under study. The study shall adopt the non-probability sampling technique and data collection was carried out using the questionnaire method consisting of one hundred (100) respondents drawn from the study population. Frequency counts and percentages were used for analyzing the data while Chi-Square was used for the testing of hypothesis.


Based on findings from this study, it was concluded that the development and operation of SMEs has economic impact on the nation. The researchers established relationships between SMEs’ sizes and their ability to pay taxes; multiple taxations and SMEs survival. The researchers therefore conclude that multiple taxations affect the survival and growth of SMEs in Nigeria.  


The study recommended among others that All SMEs should endeavor to pay their taxes as at when due. This should be done by Government providing enabling environment for them to operate and see it as one of the benefit accrued to such payment of taxes to the Government. Also Government should adequately create awareness on the need for SMEs to pay their taxes appropriately.
