THE Bolgatanga collection point of the Customs, Excise and Preventive Service (CEPS) has organised an end-of-year press soiree here to review its performance for the year.
Speaking at the event, Evans Klutse, the sector Commander, impressed on Ghanaians to voluntarily honour their tax obligation to the state.
He said the payment of taxes would enable the government to have resources to execute its development agenda by providing basic amenities for the people.
He observed that most businessmen in the area who engage in cross-border trade were apathetic towards the payment of taxes.
He said the National Health Insurance Scheme depended on taxes and therefore urged the citizenry to contribute towards its success and sustainability by paying their taxes regularly.
Robert Nana Mensah, Public Relations Officer at the Bolgatanga Collection Point appealed to the general public to volunteer information for those who evade taxes at the entry check points.
