People are obliged to fulfil their tax responsibilities; Magwe Chief Minister says

PEOPLE are all obliged to fulfil their tax responsibilities as the government is striving to realise community-based development through seven work programmes with the use of taxes collected from the citizenry, said Magwe Region Chief Minister Dr Aung Moe Nyo yesterday.
In his address at a briefing on taxation in late June the Chief Minister said that revenue generated from the 5% commercial tax on mobile phone top-ups are going toward the health and education sectors.
The department concerned is planning to sell K500 lottery tickets to contribute towards the funding of public services by the government, added the Chief Minister.
During the tax briefing the Head of the Magwe Region Internal Revenue Department U Kyaw Thein elaborated on reforms in taxation and officials made presentations on the Union Tax Law 2016 and a special goods tax law.
