The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) will soon launch a mobile application to make filing of taxes simpler for Ghanaians, according to the Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
The vice president pointed out that since the Ghana Card became a national identification card, there has been a significant increase in tax identification numbers.
Speaking at the Academic City University College campus inauguration on Wednesday (17 August), Bawumia said: “Next week, God willing, I am going to launch a new application for the Ghana Revenue Authority, which will then allow all these people with tax identification numbers to be able to file their taxes on their mobile phones, pay the tax, and get tax clearance certificate automatically generated for everybody”.
“People just find it difficult to file taxes but now we are going to make it very easy, a very nice mobile app and it is designed so that it can be accessible to the not so literate, to every one basically,” Bawumia said.
The Vice-President noted that there has been a surge in tax identification numbers since the Ghana card was made a national identification card.
