The Federal Government said it has identified and compiled a list of tax evaders, some of whom own houses abroad.
Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun disclosed this at the national economic council meeting on Thursday.
Adeosun said their tax compliance status at home will be determined.
She added that they can take advantage of the Voluntary Assets & Income Declaration Scheme (VAIDS) to pay their tax debt.
She said, “Letters would soon be going out to these Nigerians, including a number of prominent ones, asking them to take advantage of the tax amnesty in order to avoid prosecution and fines by simply paying up their tax defaults,”.
