Private school owners in Ogun state have bemoaned the multiple taxation imposed on them by the state government.
The Chairman, National Association Proprietors of Private Schools, (NAPPS), Ogun state chapter, Dr Olumide Lawrence said this while featuring on Roots 97.1fm programme, “morning magazine”.
Dr Lawrence said the state government is overtaxing the private schools sector, saying, all attempts to make them review it proves abortive.
Lawrence said, “the situation right now is as if the entire problem of the state is put in private schools. It appears that the only place they make money from.
“The implication of this is why the bills in private schools is increasing.
“They have written to the state Commissioner for Education and the Commissioner for Justice for a comprehensive review and removal of such taxes.
He listed some of the taxes in question as Tax for renewal fee, tax for teacher fee, tax for land users and amenities charge, tax for teachers permit, tax for business premises levy, tax for mobile advert, and tax for signage.
