Awareness on new tax system

The Department of Inland Revenue has launched a program to raise awareness among the public on the new tax system. It will explain as to why professionals, businessmen, officials and the public need to pay a reasonable income tax to the government from what they earn and how such taxed monies will be utilized for national development and also dividends accruing to indirect tax payers. As an initial step an awareness program will be held on October 24 at 9.30 am at the Inland Revenue Department headquarters auditorium, Colombo 2 to familiarize the Colombo district tuition class organisers, lecturers and others with the new tax system.
