The Federal Capital Territory Internal Revenue Service (FCT-IRS) has sealed Regency Hotels, a school and three business premises in the capital city for tax evasion.

 The FCT-IRS acting Director, Legal Services, Mr Festus Tsavsar, who led the enforcement team, explained that the closure of the premises was in line with a court order obtained by the IRS. 

The school and businesses premises are Gratias International School, Rural and Urban Homes Ltd, Trevari International Company and Phenomenon International Company. 

Tsavsar explained that the hotel and businesses premises contravened FCT tax laws by refusing to file their annual returns, despite issuing several notices, including a court summons.   

 “Today, we went out to execute the court orders, which permit the FCT-IRS to seal off the premises of defaulting taxpayers that were brought before it. 

“We have been able to effectively comply with the court order by sealing off the premises as directed.

 “We went to Gratias International School located in Games Village, Kaura, and sealed it off. 

“The offence they committed was refusal to file their annual returns despite many notices, including a court summon but the school management refused to comply.’’ 

From the school, the team proceeded to Residency Hotels, No. 4, Port Harcourt Crescent, Area II, Garki, where it was also sealed for not filing annual returns.

 “From there, we went to seal off Rural Urban Homes Ltd in Utako and two business premises residing in Transcorp Hilton, Abuja, namely Trevari International Company and Phenomenon International Company,” he said. 

He warned the affected business owners against any attempt to unseal the premises and advised them to go to the court to obtain a court order before they could do so.
