NOW ITS CRAZY CARS – WHAT IS THE RUSH?
How can anyone justify in this time, soon after Floods, Landslides, VAT, and Salawa, to even think of importing cars for the official use of some Ministers?
No matter what they say, it is simply NOT THE TIME, to even think about it. When the people are actually struggling under a very unfair burden of taxes, because the Govt. has failed miserably in finding the 500,000 people in this Country who don’t have a tax file and who should and have paid their taxes.
There is about Rs500B in unpaid taxes even at this low tax regime we have in Sri Lanka due to the incompetence of the Govt. to find out who they are and tax them. This is a scandal that JOE public does not know, because what you don’t see you don’t miss! I am damned if any politician opens his mouth about it either!
Every CAR DEALER is making money in a rising value market, and NO CAR dealers are paying taxes, other than the reputable companies. So every dealer with a Rs1B inventory has not paid a dime in taxes ever.
It is simple, just go to the dealership, look at the inventory, look at the loan book, and tax the net assets, as that person would have started with nothing. A flat 15% and a 10% surcharge as a penalty for not paying will alone yield Rs100B in taxes.
This is a no brainer, and why is it not done? Have the top dogs been greased or have the small fry IRS department staffers been greased, or both? Commissioner IRS this is over to you!
TRUST ME ALL THESE CARS CAN BE CONFISCATED FROM THE DEALERS IN ONE DAY FOR NON PAYMENT OF TAX AND YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO FURTHER THAN A THREE KM RADIUS FROM THE PARLIAMENT PREMISES
Why don’t our leaders have even an ounce to brain to say that tomorrow they will get these vehicles at NO COST TO THE STATE as the car dealers have presented the cars to the Parliament. It is so easy to do. Just give me the job, and I will do it, but I just need an authorization letter of request from the PM and President, and I will assure you I, a carless individual will NOT ask for one for myself.
Politicians why are you donkeys fooling the people? Do you honestly think that they are so dumb, to take this shit forever? Do you want to face the gallows?
