You can’t tax the alofa

Dear Editor,


Re: Minister issues final warning 

Why is the government targeting church ministers? Don’t churches pay taxes and those who work in their headquarters? 

Alofa oe whatever they call its something that people gave to these people as a gift or love. 

Church ministers should pay taxes if they were paid by the church headquarter but my understanding by the look these ministers are unpaid workers they work for. 

Therefore the headquarter should pay the taxes not the church ministers. Hope they solve the problem. May the grace of the lord be with you all.
