This project topic is going to be research to know how computer help in income tax appraisal for small business Operations. Like its mode of operation, its needs and how it help in solving problem in income Tax Appraisal system for small Business operators.
Tax Administration as know is done through various bodies and agencies.
This project also deals with the way computer provides a basis for an effective storage, update retrieval and general management of their records which means that it help in solving problems in the income Tax Appraisal system for small business Operators as;
1. Lack of complete knowledge of the taxable population of the state.
2. Tax evasion and avoidance
3. Lack of training for the officials of the broad and non-utilization of available information.
4. Lack of documents.
It also help to know how often tax are collected, the amount received from each individual and property and the total generated.
This project work is organized in chapter with topics and sub topics.
The first chapter of this work introducer the general view of the topic: the objective purpose and scope of the study were also explicitly stated.
The second chapter throws light on the literature
The third chapter deals with the description and analysis of the existing system overview of the existing system also the input, output and process analysis were stated.
The fourth chapter deals with the design of the new system.
The fifth chapter deals with the implementation, here program flowchart were X-drayed there.
The sixth chapter is a documentation of how to run the program and how to have it on the system.
The seventh chapter focuses on the recommendation and conclusion for further studies.

CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION
The Nigeria economy is in crisis. The situation has been made wise by sanctions imposed on Nigeria by leading western Nations to force a return to democratic rule. These developments had it telling effect on the states.

The life style/behaviour of the big shots in government are to say the least embarrassing this apathy by taxpayer tax officials affects yield. The entire globe is presently undergoing a technology revolution, which the computer system is at the center of it all.
