The 2022 individual income tax returns due on or before 28 April 2023 must be filed online
The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has implemented the “taxpayers portal” so that all tax returns are filed online. Therefore, individuals are required to use the taxpayers portal in filing their individual (personal) income tax returns. Under this directive, paper-based individual income tax returns will no longer be accepted by the GRA.
Consequently, the 2022 individual income tax returns due on or before 28 April 2023 must be filed online.
