Title: Citizen’s attitudes towards tax evasion in Ghana
Authors: Badu, Agyemang
Issue Date: 6-Apr-2016
Abstract: This study is a fact-finding study into Ghanaian citizen‟s attitudes towards tax evasion and non-compliance, initiated to offer a signal of the degree of tax evasion and non-compliance in the country. The study intends to find whether Ghanaians believe tax evasion and non-compliance as a satisfactory act and to relate its recognition with other wrongdoings such as stealing or burglary. It furthermore wishes to find whether a link becomes known in relation to individual‟s attitudes to tax evasion and non-compliance as well as their demographic features and their attitudes towards the tax scheme and tax complaint. A study commenced in Ghana linking an illustrative trial of 100 citizens. The study established that whereas tax evasion on total or a huge portion of revenue is measured offensive, minor measure of tax evasion (between 9 to 12% on earnings) is estimated as allowable activity. Minor measure of evasion is well-thought-out as more suitable than entirely other wrongdoings counted in in the study, plus thefts of stationeries in the office. Further discoveries showed that some individuals are convinced that tax evasion is mutual among their peers is absolutely linked to their reception of tax evasion, and as such, tax evasion is seen as a additional satisfactory action by less revenue sets, and by labor-intensive employees rather than directors and supervisors.
