The basic reasons for taxation

in any economy cater on the

need to raise revenue for

economic and social

development and to guide

taxpayer’s behavior. Revenue

from taxation accounts for

over 80% of government

earnings in Nigeria, hence

special attention is often paid

by tax experts, economists and

the larger public on how such

revenue is being disbursed by

government among the

various economic sectors that

makes up the country. This

study, therefore, attempts to

evaluate the impact of taxation

as a source of governance

paying special emphasis on

petroleum profit tax over a

period of twenty years. Data

were collected through

questionnaires from

respondents and statistical

bulletins of the Central Bank of

Nigeria. Result were presented

in tabular form. The ordinary

least square method of data

analysis was used for the

analysis of the data collected

from the Central Bank of

Nigeria (CBN). The result of the

findings showed that taxation

as a source of government

income has significant impact

on government revenue and

expenditure, but despite such

contribution to government

revenue generation the

country’s GDP is still low. As a

result of this finding, it was

recommended that the

government should take steps

to meet its socio-political and

economic obligations to the

citizenry as this will lead to a

growth in GDP. Finally, the

study underscores the urgent

need for the improvement of

the tax information system to

enhance the evaluation of the

performance of the Nigeria tax

system and facilitate adequate

macroeconomic planning and
