Remove 10% Bet Tax Or We Protest At Finance Ministry – NDC youth

Source The Ghana Report

The youth wing of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) has called on the government to scrap the 10 per cent tax on bet wins.

The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) began implementing a 10% withholding tax on sports betting and lotteries on August 15, 2023.

This forms part of the government’s efforts to expand the tax base and increase domestic revenue.

But the NDC has expressed a dissenting view on the policy.

In a statement signed by the National Youth Organizer of the NDC, George Opare Addo, on August 16, the youth wing indicated that they would oppose the policy by all means necessary.

“In the face of the unjust ten (10%) taxation on bet wins, we, the young people of Ghana and the NDC Youth, declare a resolute series of actions to resist the burdensome and insensitive policy,” the statement said.

“Our unity is unwavering, and our determination to protect the funds of the young people secured through betting is unyielding.”

“Through agitations, protests, advocacy, and civic engagements, we will ensure our voices are heard and demand that this corrupt Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government rescind its decision”.

Consequently,  the youth wing has planned to picket at the Ministry of Finance and other government offices if the government fails to rescind the new tax.
