TAX FOR ARTS INDUSTRY: HIPLIFE ARTISTE DONZY CHAKA TASKS COLLEAGUE TO COMPLY

Hiplife act, donzy Chaka is not part of the unwilling entertainers who wants nothing to do with taxes.

For him, it is the mandate of every profit or income earning citizen to pay taxes as his way of contributing to the economy’s development. The issue of taxation among stakeholders of the arts and creatives fraternity has been a matter of discussion for weeks now ever since the Ghana Revenue authority stated that players in the industry must be up and doing when it comes to paying taxes.

Even though there has been some stakeholder engagements within the film industry on the way forward in paying the taxes, some are reluctant to cooperate.

Meanwhile, it’s been a worrying thought on the minds of many whether or not the tax imposition would be extended to other sectors of the industry and not just the acting sector.

For rap / hiplife crooner Donzy, once a citizen, your rights work in tandem with your responsibilities.

He says it should not be a struggle for anyone to fulfill his responsibility as a citizen, regardless of the field of work the person finds his or herself

However, “the club” hit maker maintained, that to make taxation effective within the arts and entertainment industry, proper structures and policies are required for effective and profitable productions
