The government of Ghana has decided to exempt health workers from paying tax on their salaries for the next three month, that is April, May and June.
President Akufo-Addo made this announcement during an address to the nation on April 5, 2020.
“Government has decided that all health workers will not pay taxes on their emoluments for the next three months, that is April, May and June,” the President said
This measure taken by the government is a way of appreciating the services of the health workers as they help combat coronavirus in Ghana.
The President also added that all frontline health workers will receive an additional allowance of fifty per cent (50%) of their basic salary per month, that is, April, May, and June.
“The March allowance will be paid alongside that of April,” he said.
President Akufo-Addo also disclosed that there will be free transportation of the health workers. He said some Ayalolo buses have been deployed to carry out this exercise.
