GRA urges taxpayers to file tax online

The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has encouraged taxpayers to continue to file their tax returns online and make payments through the banks.

The Authority appealed to all taxpayers to fulfill their tax obligations to meet government’s needs in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Reverend Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah, GRA Commissioner General, told the Ghana News Agency in an interview in Accra.

“We will not relent in our efforts to deliver on our mandates. We will do all we can to ensure that the needed revenue is generated to meet government’s agenda as we all put our shoulders to the wheel to fight the pandemic,” he said.

He said the Authority would soon launch a digital platform that would allow taxpayers to access their Tax Identification Number from the comfort of their homes for easy business transactions.

He said the Authority supported President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s interventions to lessen the impact of the coronavirus on individuals and businesses.

According to the Commissioner General, all efforts would be made to facilitate payment of taxes during the COVID-19, but would not allow deliberate non-payment of taxes.
