Despite being more open-minded and know Goods & Services Tax is a good tax system, the Gen-Y (younger generations) still not convince the real benefits Good & Service Tax said Noelle Lily Morse in a GST Outreach Programme at the State Library auditorium, Kuching yesterday.
The Sarawak Customs Department principal assistant director said the Gen-Y were particularly concerned about Government redistribution policies.
“Their issue and concern is how the tax collection will be distributed back to the people.
“I believe the government will explain in detail about this matter because we, the customs, only do our job in tax collection,” she said, reports The Borneo Post.
She added the Gen-Y also perceived GST – which is a consumption tax – “pay as you spend” tax system as a burden.
She believed how the GST will be a burden to someone very much depends on how they spends.
