GRA NATIONAL TAX CAMPAIGN 2017 - Taxpayers-Nation Builders

GRA LAUNCHES NATIONAL TAX CAMPAIGN
The Ghana Revenue Authority has launched a campaign to deepen tax collection in Ghana.
The Campaign, themed “#OurtaxesOurFuture” seeks to open a national conversation on taxes and how they can be used to impact on the development of Ghana. 
Chairman for the launch of the campaign, Hon Paa Kofi Ansong, Member of the Council of State was very happy that GRA chose the theme “OurTaxesOurFuture” since the words convey a picture of hope and despair- hope because if we all get on board, paying the little taxes that we are supposed to pay our beloved country Ghana will have a better future; on the other hand, if we are not able to harness the taxes then the future looks bleak for us.

He said the campaign which was to create awareness and encourage more Ghanaians to pay taxes voluntarily for more development and a better Ghana must be handled effectively and efficiently. Hon Ansong said the campaign could not have taken place at a better time than this when the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo is calling on all Ghanaians to contribute their quota to national development.

The Commissioner-General of GRA, Mr. Emmanuel Kofi Nti said the campaign will undertake activities which will reawaken Ghanaians to their civic responsibilities is mostly targeted towards the informal sector. Mr Nti lamented that out of the 1.2 million registered taxpayers, about 1 million is from the formal sector with only 200,000 coming from the informal sector. There is therefore the need to bridge the gap between the two sectors by calling on all Ghanaians to contribute to national development. He said the campaign will be extensive and will involve activities such as stakeholder engagement programmes, radio/TV announcements and discussions, print media announcements, town hall meetings and dawn broadcasts.

The Minister of Finance, Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta also urged taxpayers to file tax returns, honour their tax obligations for better and free education, good health and other social infrastructure. He hinted that very soon government will sanction individuals, bodies and organisations who evade tax. He appealed to the public to help GRA to achieve its mandate of maximum revenue collection for national development.


Solidarity messages came from DFID, Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA), Catholic Bishops Conference, Institute of Public Relations Ghana, National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE) and Chartered Institute of Taxation (CITG). They all pledged to join the crusade to widen the tax net.
