Dear Churches, Days Of Your Tax-Exempt Status May Be Numbered

It is usual, whenever a scandal or an alleged scandal breaks out or is reported concerning a church, to hear people screaming their voices hoarse that “the churches and pastors should pay tax.” I have often responded to these in a few ways. First, pastors and all church workers are required by law to pay income tax. Thus if a pastor isn’t paying tax on his entire income and emoluments, the Ghana Revenue Authority should deal with it.
