Delta State Board of Internal Revenue on Tuesday sealed three companies and a school for defaulting rental fees.
The sealed companies and institution are located in Warri South, Uvwie, Sapele and Okpe Local Government Areas. The companies and institution sealed were Dewayles Company, Faith Academy, Pemuss Group of Company and Awaritswe Nigeria Limited.
The three companies and school were sealed by the Ground Rent Committee Taskforce and Revenue Court officials, as part of enforcement of the Revenue Court order issued to defaulters of the ground rent fees.
Chairman of the Ground Rent Committee Taskforce, Paul Esejor, said the defaulters had been issued several notices, but failed to comply.
He added that their refusal to appear before the Revenue Court led to the sealing of the premises by the Taskforce.
A representative from Revenue Court, Warri, Fransica Okowunzie, said the sealing was to enable the the companies and school pay up their fees and warned that tampering with the seal will incur more penalty from the Delta State Government.
She called on more companies and institutions to pay their State rental fees, as the taskforce is bent on enforcing the rules.
The sealing of defaulters by Ground Rent Committee Taskforce of Delta State Board of Internal Revenue continues.
