Property Setback Tax: This is another way for the state govt. to generate revenue – Kolawole


Still in Lagos, where the state Government has commenced the collection of levies for cars parked on property setbacks.

A notice signed by the General Manager, Lagos State Parking Authority LASPA, Adebisi Adelabu, reveals the charge per slot differs on the location and could be as high as N100,000 and as low as N80,000 per parking slot annually with a non-refundable N50,000 payment for processing charge.

According to Parking Permit and Demand Notice, residents are mandated by law to pay a certain fee for parking on property setbacks or in front of their property.

LASPA was established in 2021 and was created by the Lagos state government to enforce parking violations and offences in the state.

Rising from the new policy, some legal experts have blasted the Lagos state government for enforcing the setback parking tax in the state, referring to the practice as unlawful and urged the state government to immediately discontinue it.
