Phillips says Jamaicans should resist proposed tax package

Jamaica Gleaner / Opposition Spokesman on Finance Dr Peter Phillips has continued his crusade against the Government’s $716 billion-budget and tax package, calling for the country to resist the proposals.

However, he said Jamaicans should decide what action to take to show their stance.

He noted that sector leaders have already called for a rollback of some of the measures to yield $13.5 billion in new and increased taxes.

Phillips’ appeal comes ahead of this week’s expected vote by the Parliament on the 2017/2017 Budget.

Speaking this morning at a press conference called by the Opposition People’s National Party, Phillips declared that the Government was taking money out of the pockets of Jamaicans, causing unnecessary shock to the country.
