Budget ignores taxpayer plans
THE EDITOR, Sir:
What successive governments should consider when increasing a tax or dropping a new one on us, poor Jamaicans, is that while they have no plan for the distant future, many of us have long-term plans for growth.
It is almost impossible to craft a long-term plan if the costs of doing business are not stable. Seems to me that it is a matter of killing the goose that laid the golden egg for its feathers.
Just who is to absorb the room tax on bookings and rates set a year ago?
