The Tax Appeal Tribunal (TAT) on 20 March 2015 held that the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) should consider tax computations prepared by parties to a Production Sharing Contract (PSC) in assessing PSC parties to Petroleum Profits Tax (PPT). This is a major shift from the past practice where the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) solely determines tax payable by PSC parties and lifts tax oil based on its own tax computations.
