Pay Income Tax for a Better Future of Malaysia
Congratulations! You have just finished your taxes with e-filing 2023! Whether it is your first time completing your taxes or your first time doing your taxes in general, it’s always a cause for celebration for filing them.
Everyone can admit that filing taxes and even taxes, in general, can be frustrating since it’s taking out your hard-earned money to buy something as simple as RM5 eggs, to have it cost RM5.5 with the extra 10% tax.
But putting past the frustration that a person may have, there is an importance to taxes in any country, that is to put forwards the betterment of the Malaysian lifestyle, developed houses, education, hospital equipment and medicines, safe roads, efficient drainage systems, emergency relief shelters, all of that and more would be impossible for the government to ever create if there were no taxes in countries.
We have to put that bit of suffering from taxes, so we can ensure the safety and security of the future Malaysians that will continue to make us great.
