The Iraqis are waiting for a new and varied tax package and fees, sometimes on the owners of major projects and others that affect the ordinary citizen as well, as it is hoped that the 2023 budget will impose taxes on malls and large commercial centers, as well as on fuel such as gasoline and kerosene, which will lead to an increase in their prices.
According to preliminary information about the budget, which was received in a copy of the “Budget Statement” issued by the Ministry of Finance, a service tax will be imposed on malls and major markets, and it is expected that the state’s revenues will be 225 billion dinars, in addition to a tax on filling imported fuel by filling stations. Cars are expected to generate revenues of 25 billion dinars to the state, in addition to fees on gasoline, which will generate revenue for the state amounting to 450 billion dinars, and fees on kerosene that will generate revenues of 45 billion dinars for the state.
In addition, the economist, Nabil Al-Marsoumi, reports that there is a flat tax that will be imposed on every traveler outside Iraq, amounting to 25,000 dinars, to be deducted at the airport.
This amount was previously proposed in the 2021 budget to impose a postage stamp on the traveler worth 25,000 dinars, but it was later deleted.
