Update:

You can now use the form below to estimate your Personal income tax. The old tool has been replaced since the tax laws in Nigeria have been changed in 2011.

Fill the form below:


Total Annual income: (includes basic salary, allowances, interest, rent, commission, fees received and other taxable income)

Allowable annual deductions: (e.g. NSITF, NHF, Pension, Expenses, Life assurance, Professional dues but excluding Consolidated Relief Allowance)

To use the tool, just enter your annual income and click on the submit button.
The website of the Federal Inland Revenue Service located at http://www.firs.gov.ng actually has a lot of vital information for Nigerians when it comes to the payment of personal income tax. As we know, personal income tax is collectible by the State Internal Revenue services of the various states in Nigeria.
What I like about the FIRS website is that it allows you to access yourself online of your tax liability. Suppose you are earning say N1m a year and you use the online tax tool, it will be able to tell you the highest amount of tax you should pay for the year but this would be the highest amount prior to any deductions and reliefs that you are entitled to. In order to reduce your tax liability, the Personal Income Tax Act allows tax payers some benefits and deductions before arriving at your taxable income for the year.
Personal reliefs include personal allowances, life asurance policy payments, subscription to professional bodies, NHS and so on.

In order to reduce your tax liability, you should be able to include your allowed expenses and allowed deductions but if you just want to be able to view your maximum tax liability, just enter your total earning for the year and go to the final stage to view your tax liability.

To be able to use this tool, just go to http://www.firs.gov.ng/Tax-Management/Pages/Tax-Calculator.aspx
However, the online tool is not legally binding as you can still do the calculation yourself, hire a tax consultant or so on before making any payment for your tax.

If you are an employee, don't bother too much about tax calculation as your employer would do that for you, just make sure that you are able to monitor the tax payment that has been made on your account as well as know your registered Tax id in case you leave that company in the near future. You are however welcome to use the form above to estimate your monthly or year personal income tax liability in Nigeria.

    My overtime is been tax by my employer,is that right?. 2.My monthly income range between 120000-145000,what will be my tax due on payee?



    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by Felix Okoli on October 23, 2011 at 22:38:18:

    @Oyebode, since you earn about 16,000 monthly and hence 192000 yearly, your annual tax is N1920 and monthly tax should be N160 if using PITA 2011.
    @Nneka, since you earn N30,000 per month and hence N360,000 per month, your annual tax is N3600 per year and 300 per month if using PITA 2011
    @Adeleke, 1. your overtime should also be taxed since it is a taxable income 2. Your tax due should be at least N106,800/year and N8900/month if you are earning up to 1,440,000 a year if using PITA 2011 rules.

    How to calculate personal income tax for Nigeria



    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by Felix Okoli on October 24, 2011 at 03:18:59:

    To calculate personal tax, there is a format to follow. You could first of all get a copy of the Latest Personal Income Tax act of Nigeria. You would have to define the current income, deduct personal allowance and other deductions to arrive at your taxable income and tax liability.

    my monthly gross salary is 120,000 split into various allowances like basic salary, housing, clothing, meal,entertainment, and utility. I would like to know a few things. 1. Which allowances are taxable? 2. What is the percentage of tax paid on the allowances taxable. 3.From the gross salary, when pension and health contributions are deducted, is the tax deducted from what is left or is it deducted before these subtractions. Thanks, wont mind an explicit reply in my email box. Thanks.

    gd day,
    i earn a gross salary of 75,000 naira per month.
    i just joined the organization and i noticed a tax deduction of 11% and i am not happy with it.

    i found this site while browsing for answers.

    pls help me clarify it, though i work in abuja, not lagos.
    guess it should be the same the whole of nigeria.



    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by Felix Okoli on Friday August 2, 2013 at 10:55:5:

    If you mean 11% of N75000 monthly, then that means around 8000.
    I've checked it and using the PITA 2011 rules, you only need to be paying N750 per month and N9000 per year.


    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by charity on Tuesday August 6, 2013 at 8:47:43:

    @Felix, thanks for your response.
    i guess it was my ignorance that got me into this. my former work place does no such deductions, thus i was expecting d whole 75k.

    started job-hunting again *sad face*

    now i am smarter

    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by Felix Okoli on Monday August 12, 2013 at 14:52:19:

    You shouldn't be paying more than N28,000 per month



    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by mike on Thursday August 29, 2013 at 22:11:9:

    My monthly salary is N250,000. Please, how much should I be paying as tax? Then secondly,is it my basic that should be taxed or my full monthly salary? Thanks.



    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by Felix Okoli on Thursday August 29, 2013 at 22:11:9:

    @Mike, it is your full salary that is normally subject to tax. Your monthly tax would be at around N29,166 per month and about N350,000 per year. Also, it is your total income that is subject to tax and not just your basic salary.


    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by Tunde on Friday September 27, 2013 at 17:54:40:

    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by Felix Okoli on Friday September 27, 2013 at 17:54:40:

    Keep the good work.




    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by Felix Okoli on Tuesday October 8, 2013 at 16:31:5:

    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by Felix Okoli on Sunday October 27, 2013 at 21:12:52:

    You need to first of all add all your taxable income on one side and then add all your valid expenses on another side. Using our calculator, you'll be able to see a breakdown of how tax was calculated.


    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by paul on Thursday November 14, 2013 at 14:52:2:

    Thanks.



    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by Felix Okoli on Monday December 9, 2013 at 11:26:10:

    Just checked it. Since you earn about 600k per year, you'll be subject to a minimum tax of at least N500 per month and hence, N6000 per year.


    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by vicky on Friday January 17, 2014 at 18:15:39:

    I'm a businessman. I don't have a fixed income. Sometimes I make 200 thousand a month, other times 700 thousand. I am still single. Pls, what will be my monthly tax?



    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by Felix Okoli on Thursday March 27, 2014 at 6:2:14:

    Just keep a record of your income for the year and after that you will use the total income to calculate your tax liability. Self employed people normally pay tax yearly.


    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by Temitope Gbadamosi on Sunday March 23, 2014 at 4:4:24:

    Thanks for the enlightening opportunity. I'm a business owner what deductions should i make before arriving at my income from the business.



    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by Felix Okoli on Sunday March 23, 2014 at 4:4:24:

    As a business owner, you can deduct expenses that are normally associated with your business. For instance, if you are in the business of selling clothes in a boutique, your expenses can include your PHCN bill, rent and so on. Your tax will only be based on your profit and not on your total sales. Your profit is your total sales minus the cost of purchases and other expenses.


    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by THOMAS BLESSING on Sunday May 18, 2014 at 10:9:33:

    I am a business owner and single. I make about #500k a month. After deducting my expenses: utilities, staff salaries etc, I make #300k/ mnth which is #3.6m a year. Pls, what percentage of this is my annual tax?



    Re: Online Tax Calculator for Personal income tax for Nigeria Posted by Felix Okoli on Sunday May 18, 2014 at 10:9:33:

    Your annual tax should be about N450,000 per year which is about 12.5% of your personal income of N3.6m.
