ABSTRACT

The major objective of this research is to explore the relationship between company income tax in Nigeria and economic development of the Nation. The researcher proposed three hypotheses towards addressing the study’s objectives and both primary and secondary sources of data are used in generating the necessary data for that purpose. These data are presented and analyzed by the use of tables, chi-square and regression model of analysis. The findings reveal that there is a significant relationship between companies’ income tax in Nigeria and economic development of the Nation and that tax evasion, tax avoidance and corruption are major hindrances to revenue generation. The study also reveal that perceived government failure to effectively provide basic infrastructural facilities discourages companies from willingly complying with their tax obligations. In furtherance to the above findings, the researcher recommends that government should provide conducive business environment for the  revamping of businesses in the various industries of the economy to further increase companies’ income tax revenue generation. Government should make judicious use of tax revenue for economic development of the Nation, provide infrastructural facilities that will improve the welfare of the general populace and alleviate companies extra expenditure on such facilities.
