Tax expert, Mr Cudjoe Akpabey, has rejected views for offerings and tithes to be taxed by government.
The tax expert in an interview said taxing tithes and offerings would amount to double taxation.
The members of churches who pay tithes have already paid taxes on the monies they have paid hence taxing them would be unacceptable.
‘’However, any church that does business; some are running bookstores, some are running commercials businesses; those ones are making sales. Those ones could be taxed,’’ he added.
Some of the churches he lamented are ‘’making big time money more than businesses and banks. So go to them and find out the businesses they are doing so you can tax them.’’
Mr Akpabey challenged parliament to change the tax laws to ensure churches are taxed because one-man churches in the country are making money more than businesses.
‘’There are loopholes. Lets look at the loopholes and let the parliament of Ghana enact laws or amend our existing laws to ensure that churches running businesses will pay taxes. Some of them are not churches, they are business empires,’’ he stated.
