ABSTRACT

The level of revenue generated in the state has been in a declining form due to

poor administration and collections of taxes and lack of proper return of

accounts. These are the negative effects that affect government revenue

generation which are targeted to meet her basic functions like provision of basic

amenities for her citizenry in the state. The aim of this research study is to

evaluate the effect of tax administration on revenue generation to the Enugu

state government. The research design adopted in this study was survey research

method. Primary and secondary sources of data were used in collecting

information which was analyzed using simple percentages and hypothesis tested

using chi – square statistical method at 0.05 level of significant for validity and to

make decisions. Findings show that there was rampant incidence of tax evasion

and avoidance in the state, and the tax administration in Enugu state is

inadequate, not effective and not efficiently managed thus: inadequate staff and

facilities also hinder tax administration and collection. The researcher, in the final

analysis drew a lasting conclusion, some of which are:- the apathy of Enugu state

people towards payment of tax could be reduced by involving them in the

decision making of tax administration, collection and utilization of the tax

revenue. The environment should be made better by both the government and its

agencies. The staff of the SBIR Enugu should be well remunerated and ensure

adequate administration of tax laws in accordance with the laid down rules and

regulations.TABLE OF CONTENT
