Churches to pay Tax under Nana Addo

The Deputy Attorney-General Godfred Yeboah Dame has said that all commercial activities of churches will soon be taxed.

At a roundtable organised by the Kingdom Equip Network on Thursday, Mr Dame told Accra-based Starr FM: “…The legal regime now provides for the taxation of activities of churches which essentially bother on business.”
“It is only in respect of activities which are charitable that churches are exempted from taxation,” he said.

He said that “…even the current law in the country…warrants that we tax them [churches] for activities which are commercial or bother on trading or business.”
