The leadership of Jehovah Witness has thrown its support for government’s directive to tax churches urging stakeholders to carry on.
There has been an ongoing discussion as to whether to tax church in the country after a government official revealed that there are plans been put in place by the government to start taxing various churches in the country.
Some Pastors have shared their displeasure towards the new directives whiles others have expressed their willingness to pay so the government can use it to develop the country.
Commissioner of the GRA Kofi Nti argued that the move was necessary because such activities fall out of the legal remit of the churches’ operation across the country.
He said the Authority will soon conduct investigations into activities of all churches in the country with the view to taxing them based on their level of business transactions.
