The umbrella body of petroleum marketing companies, Association of Oil Marketing Companies (AOMCs) has registered their anger about the treatment meted out to the members of the Association over the collection of petroleum taxes in the country.
We collect taxes for the government on a daily basis for free, the Association said.
According to the Association, it has over the years been collecting the said petroleum taxes at their various point of sales for the government at their own cost without the government paying them a dime.
Is it not just right for us not to be paid for doing the work of the Ghana Revenue Authority(GRA).
Mr Kwaku Agyemang Duah, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Association made this revelation by speaking to the media on the impending increment in petroleum price pushed by world market price.
On daily basis, many of our members collect these petroleum taxes at their various Point Of Sales(POS) for the government without a dime from the government, he said.
The government does not even show gratitude for the work being done by the members of the Association, he argued.
'Yet our operations are slapped with huge taxes, fees, and licenses, he stressed.
