The federal government is set to introduce 9% tax on calls, MMS, SMS, Data and others.

The Minister of Communication, Adebayo Shittu stated this while speaking at a stakeholders’ meeting organised by the Lagos Chambers of Commerce and Industry, LCCI.
The Minister who was speaking on CST bill which seeks to levy nine per cent on subscribers for the use of the various communication services said the outcome of deliberations on the bill would form the basis of his advice to the President.
The services include voice call, SMS, MMS, Data usage from telecommunication service providers, internet service providers and Pay TV Stations.
He noted that introduction of new taxes without harmonising existing ones would put pressure on the country’s tax system thereby making it unattractive to investors.
He said that the government’s efforts at increasing its revenue made the bill worthy of consideration.
