The MP revealed the amount of tax arrears according to the statement made by the Head of the Tax Department, which reached 27 billion, 127 million pounds of them 10 billions, 32 million pounds cannot be collected due to bankruptcy or debtors leaving the country. In addition to this, there are 17 billions, 640 million pounds currently under collection negotiations.

 

Mr. Ismail claimed that these taxes are the rights of the nation and the people and should be collected since it was announced by the Tax Department. He stressed that the lack of payment is not to anybody's benefit.
