Good News To Kenyans As Petition Filed Over 16 percent VAT On Cooking Gas

Last week, president Uhuru Kenyatta approved key Bills effecting taxes including 16 percent Value Added Tax (VAT) to the supply of LPG gas and greater Excise Duty for telephone and data services which will result in higher airtime and internet costs.

The price for purchasing cooking gas and even refiling the cooking gas, increased by 16 percent effective from 1 st July. Many Kenyans who depend on cooking gas have been in difficult situation since then.

It is good news to announce to kenyans, that the petition has been filed seeking suspension of 16 percent Value Added Tax (VAT).

The case has been filed at the Milimani Law Court seeking to have the 16 percent VAT on cooking gas suspended.

According to petitioner, Dindi Oscar Okumu, the imposition of Value Added Tax will reverse the gains. He argued that the National Assembly did not engage the public.

Therefore, if the petition will come through, then many kenyans will be happy. Since the economy is somehow especially at this era of covid-19 pandemic.
