14 Million identified as eligible taxpayers after TINs exercise

About 14 million people have been identified as eligible taxpayers after a successful integration of the Ghana Card and Tax Identification Numbers (TINs), an exercise which started on April 1, this year.

The Commissioner-General of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Mr Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah, who made this known, said out of the number, only six million filed their annual tax returns, leaving the majority, who included lawyers, medical personnel, engineers and accountants not complying with the country’s tax laws.

Further analyses of the data, he stated, also showed that culprits of the anomaly were mostly people between 35 and 65 years old and residing mostly in the top 10 affluent communities of the country.

The forum

Mr Owusu-Amoah was speaking at a forum organised by the Ghana National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GNCCI) in Accra yesterday.
