Tax credit scheme suspended: Minister

National Planning and Implementation Minister, Richard Maru, confirmed this in parliament yesterday.

He made the announcement after he was asked by Komo-Margarima MP Manasseh Makiba to allow local MPs to identify projects to be funded by the tax credit scheme.

The need to make use of the scheme has become greater after the devastating aftermath of the February 26 earthquake.

“At the moment the tax credit scheme has been suspended over a number of issues, one of them is the projects have no inputs from Governors and local MPs of parliament,” stated Maru.
