Some Ghanaians have expressed skepticism in the wake of the Ghana Revenue Authority’s (GRA) declaration that bloggers, influencers, and Masters of Ceremonies (MC) would be subject to taxation.
Many claim that although additional taxes have been implemented to raise money for the state, the current government has not used the funds from the electronic levy, or e-levy.
The E-levy party resurfaced as a result of the declaration that bloggers would be subject to taxation, which was the subject of the majority of conversation.
One of the tweets spotted by 1Family Radio claims that the administration implemented the tax despite strong opposition from Ghanaians.
“After we cried and begged them not to implement the E-levy because we don’t have money, They didn’t bother to listen. Implemented it and went ahead to host a party to taunt us further. Never forget #OccupyJulorbiHouse,’’ one of the tweets read.
