‘Artistes are no exception’ Featured

It is common policy that all citizens pay income tax if they earn profits through any production process and that is applicable to artistes without an exception, a finance ministry spokesman stresses.

He refers to opposition by artistes to the removal, through new tax laws, of tax concessions granted to them previously.

If they want certain tax concessions, they can raise it with government authorities, he said.

Artistes say they have been denied tax concessions in lieu of income from literary work, stage plays, songs as well as the construction of a cinema hall.
