Emmanuel Kofi Nti, the Commissioner-General of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), says the Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) has no spiritual connotation with the Anti-Christ.
The GRA has announced that individuals without a Tax Identification Number (TIN), effective, April 3, 2018 will not be allowed to clear goods from the port, acquire a Driver’s license, open a bank account, get a passport, transact business with government, or register a business.
The Commissioner General answering a question by media person linking the mandatory tax to Revelation 13:17 “and that no man can buy or sell except those who had the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name” said “ the TIN is not 666, it has nothing to do with any spiritual thing”.
According to the GRA, the TIN is aimed at uniquely identifying potential taxpayers to broaden the tax base.
The Authority has announced that all Ghanaians working must acquire a TIN to fulfill the Revenue Administration Act (RAA), 2016, Act 915.
Some of the institutions that will require TIN are the DVLA, RGD, Passport Office, GRA, Lands Commission, Law Courts, Ministries, government departments, agencies, metropolitan, municipal and district assemblies.
