The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has refuted reports that a luxury vehicle tax is likely to be implemented in the nation.
The Authority contends that this assertion is untrue because they did not approve that publication.
This comes after a fictitious letter titled "Implementation of Luxury Vehicle Levy" that has been circulating on social media. According to the aforementioned letter, the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) has given permission to levy a fee annually on high-end luxury automobiles.
But in a statement issued December 2, 2022 said “GRA wishes to inform the general public that this publication was not issued by the Authority and its contents are completely FALSE. No levies have been imposed on luxury vehicles and neither is the DVLA authorized to collect such levies.”
As a result, the GRA has asked the general public to ignore the aforementioned publication and has also issued a warning to individuals who are disseminating incorrect information.
“Investigations are currently being carried out into the source of this misleading information and persons found to have deliberately fabricated and circulated this information will be sanctioned appropriately,” it said.
The statement added that “GRA wishes to advise its customers and the general public to verify information on taxes and levies or any information relating to the Authority by contacting us on 0800-900-110, on [email protected] or by WhatsApp on 0552 990 000 and 0200 631 664.”
