Abstract

Oil boom in 1970s have positive and negative impact on the Nigerian economy. The recent oil price dwindling in the world has created problems for government of the country to adequately generate revenue to settle government expenditures. The study investigated the effects of oil and non-oil taxes revenue on economic growth in Nigeria. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) was used as proxy for economic growth, while oil tax revenue was proxy with Petroleum Profit Tax (PPT); non-oil taxes were proxy with Company Income Tax (CIT), Capital Gain Tax (CGT), Stamp Duties (SD) and Education Tax (EDT). Ex-post facto research design was adopted and secondary data were sourced from the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) and Central Banks of Nigeria (CBN) Statistical Bulletin on quarterly basis for nine years (2011-2019). Descriptive statistics, Unit roots test, Toda Yamamoto (Granger Causality Test and Wald Test) were used to analyze the time series data. The results of the study showed that oil tax revenue have no influence on economic growth while non-oil taxes have effect on economic growth. Therefore, the study recommended that government need to initiate regular tax reforms that will encourage small and medium scale enterprises (SME’s) and encourage full diversification of the economy into technological, agricultural, mechanical and productivity aspects to improve the standard of living of the citizens.
