LRA takes tax awareness to Western Liberia

Liberia’s Revenue Authority ends awareness campaign in Western Liberia.

Bomi, Liberia, June 5, 2024 – A team from the Liberia Revenue Authority’s (LRA) Taxpayer Services Division has successfully concluded a ten-day tax awareness campaign across western Liberia. The initiative aimed to educate and engage Bomi, Cape Mount, and Gbarpolu taxpayers on various tax types and compliance requirements.

According to a press release, throughout the campaign, the LRA team conducted extensive tax education sessions with diverse stakeholders, including taxpayers, key business stakeholders, residential property owners, market women, and other citizens.

The primary focus areas included real property tax payments, general compliance for petty traders, and guidelines for small and medium-sized businesses.

In addition to face-to-face engagements, the team utilized radio talk shows across Bomi, Gbarpolu, and Grand Cape Mount Counties to reach a wider audience and ensure that vital tax information was accessible to all residents.

The LRA team further provided customer service training to its frontline staff at the Tax Business Offices in the three counties. The training was designed to enhance the interaction between tax agents and taxpayers, promoting a courteous and friendly approach to service delivery.

The tax awareness campaign is part of the LRA’s ongoing efforts to foster revenue growth and promote tax compliance throughout Liberia. The LRA is mandated to collect US$738.8 million this year to support the country’s budget. Creating nationwide tax education and awareness to boost compliance is one of the many ways the LRA is working to meet targets. Press Release
