NCCE commences second round of tax education

Tamale- The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has started the second phase of its tax education campaign aimed at drawing public attention to the essence of tax payment.

Mr Abu Nassau, the East Mamprusi Municipal Director of the NCCE, led staff of the Commission for intensified tax compliance campaign in 52 communities in the District.

The Commission took the campaign to traditional rulers and market places and interacted with fowl sellers, artisans and hairdressers among others and advised them to honour their tax obligations for development.

Mr Nassam said tax payment in any amounts must not be considered as small since little contributions put together would build a mighty nation.

He said industrialised nations developed through commitment of their citizens to pay tax and appealed to all to pay their taxes for improved healthcare delivery, better education and improved road networks.

He gave the assurance that with the continued support of the Ghana Revenue Authority the Commission would continue to carry its mandate of education to generate more revenue for the country.

The communities the Commission visited included the Nalerigu Township, Gambaga, Gbintiri, Namiyala and Langbinsi.
