PRESIDENT MUSEVENI REFUSES TO ASCEND TO THE INCOME TAX AMENDMENT BILL

By Alice Lubwama

President Museveni has sent back to parliament the Income Tax amendment bill that was recently passed by members of parliament exempting them from paying tax.

The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga has told chairpersons of the various parliamentary committees today,  that the President  refused to ascend to the bill and returned it back to parliament   saying members of parliament should pay the taxes  because  even teachers who earn very little pay taxes.

The president noted that there is no reason why members of parliament should be exempted from paying tax when the rest of the public servants pay taxes.
