The Nigerian Tax Research Network (NTRN) is a new initiative of the ICTD funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The goal of the NTRN is to support the generation and exchange of tax knowledge in Nigeria.

NTRN stakeholders include tax practitioners and researcheres from both Nigerian and international organisations. It is concerned with all topics related to taxation, ranging from tax policy to tax administration, and from academic papers to practical studies.

The three main objectives of the NTRN are to:

1. Provide a platform for knowledge exchange and for evidence-based debate on tax issues, through seminars and conferences.
2. Facilitate coordination and complementarity between existing projects and actors active in the area of tax in Nigeria.
3. Provide funding for high quality, policy-relevant research mainly or wholly led and undertaken by Nigerian researchers.

The Chair of the NTRN is Mrs Ifueko M. Omoigui Okauru

The Research Coordinator is Dr Olly Owen 

The Secretariat is based at the Center for Public Policy Alternatives 

The NTRN was formally launched on 12-14th of September at the Transcorp Hilton in Abuja. The theme of the event was  ‘Revenue beyond oil reliance’. 

The ICTD has also signed a memorandum of understanding with the Federal Inland Revenue Service, which includes cooperation on the NTRN. ntrngroup
