a member of the Parliamentary Transportation and Communications Committee, Karwan Ali Yarouis, called, on Saturday, members of parliament to refuse to vote on the paragraph of returning taxes on mobile phone recharge cards, after they were included in the budget.
"The committee, in cooperation with the Ministry of Communications, was able to reduce the tax that was imposed on mobile phone recharge cards, which amounted to 20 percent," Yarois said in a statement received by Mawazine News.
Yarois expressed his "regret" that the 2023 budget bill "in which that tax was returned at a rate of 10 percent on cards, which affects the economic situation of the citizen."
He added, "If the purpose of imposing the tax is to increase the sources of revenues for the government, then it is better to take those millions of dollars accumulated as debts and taxes on telecommunications companies and return them to the state treasury."
Yauris called on all members of the House of Representatives not to vote on the paragraph of imposing taxes on recharge cards within the budget law, so that their prices remain the same without an increase. Ended 29/N33
