The Chief Revenue Officer of Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Dominic Naab has disclosed that persons in the creative industry will be taxed based on their lifestyles.

Speaking to industry players, Mr. Naab said, celebrities all over the world are taxed based on their lifestyles and the same formula will be applied here in Ghana.
“The GRA will see to it that persons in the creative arts pay their tax because they earn a lot and live expensive lifestyle. Come out with your actual incomes you make so we can tax you very well” He said.
Mr. Naab explained that, actors or persons in the creative industry need to come to the offices of GRA and explain for example if they are given gifts in the form of a car, a house or anything valuable.
