E-levy: You’re Not Poor If You Earn GHS3000 In Ghana – John Kumah



Deputy finance minister, John Kumah has insisted any Ghanaian who earns GHS3000 and above cannot be described as poor with respect to the E-levy.

Speaking on GTV he said all Ghanaians whether poor or rich will contribute to the E-levy to build the country.

“…if you’re market women or trotro driver who uses Mobile Money to transact your business, for up to GH¢100 a day, this transaction (E-Levy) is not going to affect you and if you accumulate it in a month that will be GH¢3,000 and we know that in Ghana if you earn above GH¢3,000, you cannot be classified as poor,” John Kumah said.

“…So, we should understand that whether you’re poor or rich, you still have responsibility or obligation as a citizen to still contribute your quota to the building of the country in terms of taxes but in this instance we’ve said that let’s protect the poor or the two sensitive groups to the MoMo,” he added.
