GST M40 bear the brunt

KUALA LUMPUR (April 7): The Edge weekly in its latest edition reported that it might be natural to think that the Goods and Services Tax (GST) is regressive, where the burden on the poor is heavier since they pay the same amount of tax as those who earn a lot more. And it is hard to escape the tax net.

The reality, however, could be different, it said its cover story.

The Edge’s Samantha Ho and Esther Lee wrote that granted, the bottom 40% of the population (B40) are adversely affected by the extra tax that was introduced in April 2015, but they may not be the hardest hit.
