Perceptions of Taxation and the Use of Tax Revenues: The Case of Ghana

June 3, 2021 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm UTC+0

The concern of tax compliance is shared across countries. Taxes are important to financing government priorities and schemes, including health insurance, social grants, and development projects. Ghana, like other countries, has faced the problem of tax revenues underperforming government expenditures. Part of the problem is compliance.

In a new publication, Leaders of Africa Institute alumni Isaac Newton Bortey explores public perceptions on tax compliance and how perceptions of the use of taxes shape views on compliance. The research relies on new data from the Afrobarometer, a pan-African series of national public attitude surveys on democracy, governance, and society, collected in 2019. Bortey presents his findings and participates in an interactive discussion on Leaders of Africa Hangouts. Bortey is a policy analyst and a development practitioner presently with the Ghana Audit Service. Join our conversation about taxation and compliance across African countries.
