In Ghana, social security deductions made by employees are typically deductible when calculating taxable income. This means that the contributions employees make towards the social security system are subtracted from their gross income before the computation of income tax. As a result, these deductions effectively reduce the taxable income of employees, potentially lowering their overall income tax liability. This approach is designed to provide some relief to employees by recognizing their mandatory contributions towards state-run social security programs.
