MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA), through its Real Estate Tax Division, is extending its tax awareness to churches.

The campaign commenced recently at the Dominion Christian Fellowship Church on the Tubman Boulevard in Congo Town.

The LRA said the initiative is also part of efforts to increase domestic resource mobilization and boost the revenue collection across the country.

Speaking at the launch Sunday, September 16, 2018, LRA Assistant Commissioner for Real Estate Tax Division, Isaac Beyan Stevens, described tax payment as a National Duty and obligation of all.

Commissioner Stevens said:” The development of any country requires the full cooperation of citizens, especially through the payment of their taxes.”

Commissioner Stevens called on churches to encourage their members to be tax compliant by paying their fair share of taxes to help develop Liberia.

Meanwhile, the Resident Bishop of the Dominion Christian Fellowship Church, George Washington, urged members of the church owning properties to fully cooperate with the LRA in meeting their obligations to the state.
