The Minister for Finance, Mr Ken Ofori Atta will be presenting the budget statement for the 2022 fiscal year in Parliament, today Wednesday, November 17.
The budget is expected to outline job creation measures and efforts to support the teeming youth of this country.
Speaking in an interview with TV3 on Tuesday, November 16 ahead of the presentation, Prof Gatsi who is the Dean of the Business School at the University of Cape Coast said “Definitely, if you are talking about a huge deficit you want to ensure that you achieve fiscal consolidation.
“Tax alignment is the solution but as to whether the alignment will respond to the reality of the grounds is another thing. So definitely there will be tax alignment in the budget.
“The net effect of that alignment will be an increase in taxes because you will want to achieve fiscal consolidation so that is expected.
