After taking control of the Federal government after a controversial "fraud" victory , BN/UMNO Federal Government has already started imposing hardship on the poor Malaysian rakyat.
The above shows a tax of 16% being imposed (service tax - 10% and GST of 6%) on the rakyat.
Malaysians don't deserve this!!!! BUT the fault lies on some Malaysian voters who had been carried away by favors and goodies to vote for the "uncaring, corrupt and ineffective" BN/UMNO.
I linked to the site as a matter of course as it’s internet etiquette, but personally I wouldn’t recommend visiting – too many pop-ups and pop-unders.
Nevertheless, this is something that’s been going around the net lately. A variation is to confuse the service tax (abbreviated as GST) with the government somehow stealth-bombing the Goods and Services Tax (also GST) on an unsuspecting public.
You might visit this link for more on the latter (and “like” it while you’re at it).
In any case, the REAL truth is that both the government sales and service taxes (SST) have been around for yoinks. The sales tax has been in force since 1972 (link to relevant act) and the service tax since 1975 (link to relevant act). The current 10% rate for the sales tax was set in April 2008 while the 6% rate for the service tax has been in effect since January 2011.
How many people haven’t realise they’ve been paying 10%-16% extra on so many items all these years?
Doesn’t GST at 6%-7% to replace SST at 10%-16% now make a WHOLE lot more sense? ¡Ay, caramba!
