Abstract

This paper evaluates the revenue productivity of Ghana's overall tax system and of individual taxes on the basis of estimates of tax buoyancies and elasticity. It also looks at the links between the tax reform of 1983-1993 and revenue performance,as well as at ways of mobilizing additional revenue.
