ACTING President Inonge Wina says while it is an obligation for Zambians to pay taxes, they should not be burdened.
“My Government wants to see to it that while Zambians should pay taxes, the tax burden should not stifle their livelihoods. I am hopeful that the Minister of Finance will consider this important point when she presents the 2019 national budget,” she said.
Mrs Wina said this yesterday when she officially opened the Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) service centre at Cosmopolitan Mall.
The personal income tax rate in Zambia stands at 37.50 percent and the pay as you earn exempt threshold is K3,300.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
