Simple Questions On Taxes , Rates And Dividend

Example:- Alapere Agboyi Local Development government charges N5.50 monthly for the use of market stalls along Ajibola Crescent

Find The total rent collected monthly From

(A). 50 stalls (B) 160 stalls


(A). Monthly rate collected for N50

Stalls is N5.50×50 =N275.00

(B) Monthly Rate is N5.50

For 160 Stalls N5.50 x 160 = N880


Example:- Tax deducted from the taxable Income of an employee is 35K on Every N1. Find the tax paid if the Taxable income is N4,500


= (35k/N1.00 x N4500.00)  or (0.35 x 4500) = N1575.00

Payable Income Tax ON N4500 at the rate of 35% is N1575




A metal manufacturing company Sells some of its 40K share to the Public who are ready to buy in Multiples of 200.


(i). What is the cost of 800 shares?


(ii). How many shares can I buy With N1, 250?



Cost of one share = 40K

Cost of 800 Shares = 40k×800  = N( 40×800)= N320.

Answer = N320:00



(ii). 40K can buy only one share: or 

one share unit =  N0:40 or 0.40 = 1 unit (0.40 x 1)

two share units = N0:80 or 0.80 will buy 2 units (0.40 x 2)

five share units = N 2:00 or N2:00 will buy five unit (0.40 x 5)

ten share units = N 4:00 or N4.00 will buy ten units of shares (0.40 x 10)

Therefore N1,250 will buy (0.40 x N1250) = 500 units of  shares.




Dividends:- These are the rewards on shares or investments.

A share holder has 200 shares in a Company in Kosofe .Calculate The  Dividend  of the share holder if dividends are given at five and half kobo per share .


Dividend on 1 share = 5 1/2 Dividend on 200 shares =( 11/ 2k )×( 200) or (5.5/100) x N200   0r (55/100) x N200   or 0.55 x N200 = N11:00

Ans = N11: 00
