N-Power commenced the 2017 Application on the 13th of June, 2017. N-Power Tax, a new category, was introduced to enlist and train N-Power Volunteers as Community Liaison Tax Officers under the voluntary assets and income declaration Scheme (VAIDS). VAIDS is an initiative of the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Joint Tax Board that encourages non-compliant taxpayers to voluntarily declare their correct income and assets and pay the appropriate tax, as well as, widen the tax net.
N-Power will select 7,500 qualified N-Power Volunteers who will undertake tax promotion, document review, record keeping, tax enquiries response, customer management, report writing, amongst others, under VAIDS.On the 29th of June, 2017, the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, issued an Executive Order instituting VAIDS. VAIDS has a lifespan of 9 months commencing on the 1st of July, 2017. As a result, the N-Power Tax category will operate an expedited selection process.
