The study made used of secondary (Quarterly data) sourced from Planning, Research and Statistics Department (2020-2022); Financial Inland Revenue (2020 to 2022); CBN Statistical Bulletin (2020 to 2022). The result showed that, both Petroleum Profit Tax (PPT) Company Income Tax (CIT) had high adverse yet considerable effect on economic growth of Nigeria during the Post Covid-19 periods whereas Value Added Tax (VAT) and Custom and excise duties (CED) had high positive yet considerable effect on economic growth of Nigeria during the Post Covid-19 periods.
