“My government will abolish the Luxury Vehicles Tax from 2021, if the Akufo-Addo government refuses to suspend or scrap it,” Former President Mahama has said.
Speaking to Executives and drivers of the Neoplan station local GPRTU in Accra on Thursday, Mr. Mahama pointed out that the new tax is a liability and not generating that much revenue, wondering why government would not scrap it.
The luxury vehicles tax was introduced by the Akufo-Addo-led administration to tax vehicles with bigger engine capacities.
The tax affects all vehicles including commercial vehicles, farm tractors, pick up vehicles among others.
The NDC Leader was on a pre-Easter tour of selected lorry parks to advocate for an accident-free Easter.
He also admonished drivers to take greater responsibility for the safe arrival of their passengers and themselves at their destinations.
