Government has for weeks now indicated there will be imposition of new taxes on goods and services. The new tax hikes are intended to generate revenue to develop the economy.

Nonetheless, critics have raised concerns about the new tax imposition and called on government to review its decision. Bernard Mornah, General Secretary of the People’s National Convection (PNC), has appealed to government to check the imposition of taxes on certain products in the country.

Speaking on Oman FM today, Mr. Mornah noted with seriousness the need for government to do tax discrimination in order to improve the lives of the underprivileged society.

He explained that it is incumbent on government to provide incentives to local producers in the country.

Being particular about cutlass sellers, Bernard Mornah expressed worry over their inclusion in the new tax net, stating that it will serve as disincentive to them should government impose new taxes on the production of cutlasses in the country.

To him, “If the taxes that we have imposed on the cutlasses are supposed to discourage importation of cutlasses, I will go all for it.

He hoped the new tax increments will help boost domestic productivity.

“Taxes are necessary but whiles other people are using taxes as a way of boosting domestic productivity - as a way of taking control of their economy; our taxes are the opposite… Let’s do tax discrimination.”
