With this appointment, individuals and corporate organizations can now pay all their FIRS taxes into any of the 200 branch offices of Mainstreet Bank across the country.

The bank’s robust collection system has been strengthened by the on-going retooling of its internal processes and the deployment of superior e-Payment infrastructure to ensure seamless transac-tions for its customers who can henceforth walk into any of the bank’s branches across nationwide to make all payments due FIRS.
In addition to FIRS payments, Mainstreet Bank has mandates to collect Internally Gene-rated Revenue (IGR) in 31 states of the Federation.
