A kina saved is a kina earned, says Koim

Commissioner General for the Internal Revenue Commission, Sam Koim, made these remarks when addressing the National Press Club in Port Moresby recently.

A tax is a mandatory payment or charge collected by local, state, and national governments from individuals or businesses to cover the costs of general government services, goods, and activities.

Commissioner Koim said every taxpayer in the country has the legitimate right to question how their tax has been used by the Government.

He said any kina that is saved, is a kina earned.

Lae MP and Lands Minister, John Rosso, made this statement in relation to an incomplete classroom at Huonville Primary School.

K500,000 was allocated in 2019 by the Morobe Provincial Government to build a classroom for Huonville Primary School.

Disbursed by the provincial works division, the contractor of their choice received payment but only managed to build a foundation.
