The Homagama Tax Payers’ Association called a press conference on Tuesday and requested that 71 new taxes proposed by the Homagama Pradeshiya Sabha on the public be ceased immediately.

Chairman of Homagama Tax Payers’ Association Wijerathna Gamage said, “Over the coming year we will monitor if the revenue earned through taxes is being used for good and whether it is being spent to ensure a brighter future. It is not enough for them to put up banners claiming that the taxes are being charged for your benefit.”

“We have a major problem, if they are putting up banners and then using the taxes for their own benefit. There was the two million rupee VAT fraud. It was in the Homagama Pradeshiya Sabha. It is to this Pradeshiya Sabha that we are paying taxes. The wealthy do not get caught to these taxes. It is the common people that are caught in these taxes.”
