Akufo Addo’s gov’t has moved from taxation to daylight robbery – Domelevo

Former Auditor-General, Daniel Domelevo, says the Nana Ado Dankwa led New Patriotic Party government have moved from taxation to robbery.

He characterised the Ghana’s tax system as a blatant form of robbery.

In his assessment, the tax system is detrimental to taxpayers, as it imposes heavy burdens on them.

Mr. Domelevo highlighted the constant taxation endured by taxpayers, even after paying income tax and taxes on earnings.

Speaking in an interview on JoyNews’ AM Show on Monday, April 8, 2024, Mr. Domelevo emphasized that unless these challenges are addressed, ordinary taxpayers will continue to suffer.

He labelled it as “daylight robbery” that necessitates immediate attention without further delay.

“We have moved from taxation to robbery and the reason why I said that is because when you receive income or you earn any money at all, there will be a withholding tax or a pay-as-you-earn.

So it is taxed and immediately you want to use the rest to buy anything at all, there is a long list of taxes waiting for you which you have to pay and even when you are paying for the thing that you bought including the tax, you are taxed again; is that not robbery?” the Former Auditor-General quizzed.
