Cabinet Spokesman Minister Dullas Alhapperuma said the Government had not taken any decision to impose a five percent tax on the income of the people drawing monthly salaries of more than Rs.100, 000 each.

The Minister told the weekly Cabinet meeting that although Trade Minister Bandula Gunawardane had made some remarks to that effect, the government had not even thought of such a step at this juncture. He said Mr. Gunawardane would have expressed it as his personal opinion.

“I don't intend to embarrass him as he is my colleague. However, we, in the Cabinet, had not taken the matter even for a discussion,“he said.(Kelum Bandara)

    Stop ad-hoc tax policies Tax everyone equally and fairly Including public sector and politicians so the compliance will be higher If you only tax productivity sector such as majority of the private sector compliance will be lower and collection will always be lower

    That bandula as always talks bullshit. Why should we pay more taxes when the purchasing power of our earnings are going down?
