A government that is unable to explain a tax measure…

The tax on withdrawals from deposit-taking institutions is scheduled to take effect on June 1 and is projected to rake in J$2.25 billion of the J$6.7 billion in new taxes the government is budgeting to collect this year.

However, the tax has been met widespread opposition from several professional and civil society groups.
When both the finance minster Dr. Phillips and the Jamaican Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller is unable to properly explain the tax measure maybe they Jamaican government should abandon this proposed tax.
