Road tax lowered on private vehicles from Jan 1
Road tax lowered on private vehicles from Jan 1 … Is it a good news or a bad news ?
Vehicle owners will have something to celebrate this New Year – lower road tax. Yeah rite … What’s the point of lowering road tax when the fuel price rise ? We only pay road tax once or twice a year but we purchase petrol almost everyday.
“The Government will continue to find ways and means to lessen the financial burden of the people. We have decided that reducing road taxes and excise duties will benefit a wide section of society,” said Najib.
“The move will result in the Government losing some RM250mil in revenue yearly,” he told reporters.
Najib said the public should not be unduly worried over speculation of an increase in petrol prices next year.
“As of now, we have not decided to raise the price of petrol,” he said, adding that the Government was willing to forgo a substantial amount in revenue to ensure benefit for the people.
Okay, so what if the Government is losing RM250mil in revenue yearly when they could get it back even more with the higher price of petrol ? Do they have to mention it in such obvious manner that the Government is losing money just to lessen financial burden of the people ? Pretending to be an angel but a devil within.
The people should be worried since they’re paying for the fuel. As for the Government workers, they’re so damn lucky that they get all sorts of allowance. And where does all those money comes from ? US ! The taxpayers… Whatever the Government is doing will not just “benefit” the people but “bigger benefit” the the Gov itself.
