Tax Justice Coalition - Ghana

We the members of the Tax Justice Coalition, having the succinct recognition of tax injustices in Ghana and the world at large, believe that the citizens (tax payers) and the government with its allied institutions who hold a fiduciary role in the management of tax revenues, ought to execute their respective roles in a just, coherent and honest manner, thus promoting transparency, integrity and accountability in the tax system particularly in Ghana.

To this end, the Ghana Tax Justice Coalition seeks to work at the local and national level to complement regional and continental efforts to deliver tax justice.
