Coffins Sellers To Pay More For This Reason

Carpenters, especially those making coffins have been reaping big amidst the covid-19 pandemic. With the high death rates in the recent days, more people have been purchasing coffin since morgues for example General Kago in Kiambu, are full of bodies.

This business people will be hardly hit if the revised tax Bill is ammeded and passed to become a law. The new taxes are in the Vihiga the Vihiga County Finance Bill 2021 and Vihiga County Trade Licensing (Amendment) Bill 2021 which is currently before the assembly being discussed.

If passed, coffin sellers are will be required to pay a tax of Ksh 50,000 annually. The affected business owners are in complete disagreement saying that they will not be left with anything in their pockets. “I don't want the Bill to be passed because the profits made from this business are not enough to pay rent, workers and even to remain with something to save. The government should have mercy on us," Said James not his real name.

The entrepreneurs hope for the best as they wait to see what will happen.
