National Tax Justice Platform (NTJP) has asked government to introduce policies that will ensure that the rich pays more taxes.
One of the members of NTJP Dalitso Kubalasa said there is need for big companies and those who are well to do to pay more tax than those who are poor.
“There is need for big companies and rich people to be paying more tax than those who earn less,” said Kubalasa who is also Executive Director for Malawi Economic Justice Network (MEJN).
He added that big companies are making profits but not paying tax hence the need to follow up what is happening in order to retrieve the taxes.
Kubalasa further said that their network will come up with a tax justice campaign to create awareness for people to be able to follow up what is happening.
According to him, the awareness campaign will build levels of responsibility in tax paying among Malawians as it needs collective efforts.
