GRA Commences Use Of Ghana Card Number As Taxpayer Identification Number.
The Personal Identification Number (PIN) on the ‘Ghana Card’ will from today, Thursday, April 1, 2021, replace your Tax Identification Number (TIN).
This was stated in a joint press statement from the National Identification Authority (NIA) and the Ghana Revenue Authority as previously announced by President Akufo-Addo in the 2021 State of the Nation Address.
To this effect, the NIA has set up registration centers at various GRA offices to register individuals without the Ghana Card.
“This change is in line with the Government’s policy on the use of a unique identifier for all transactions where the identification of an individual is required.
“To ensure a seamless roll-out of this initiative, the following measures have been instituted: Registration officials of the National Identification Authority (NIA) are currently stationed at fourteen (14) GRA offices across the country to register individuals who do not possess a Ghana card.
“Registration officials of the National Identification Authority (NIA) will eventually be stationed at sixty-three (63) other GRA locations to serve all taxpayers.
