Selangor waives hawker licence fee, assessment tax on low-cost homes

THE Selangor government is giving an exemption on hawker licence fees and assessment tax for kampung and low-cost houses for next year.

Local government and public transportation committee chairman Ng Sze Han (pic) said in a statement on Thursday (Sept 15) that the move would reduce the state's income by RM68.74mil.

He added, however, that the state was committed to help its people cope with the rise in cost of living.

“The country is in the recovery phase (after the) Covid-19 pandemic. However, the people are facing other challenges like inflation, weak ringgit and continuous increase in overnight policy rate that have affected their housing and vehicle loans.

“As such, the state has decided to reduce the burden on the people (through these exemptions)," he said.

He added that the exemption was being given for the eighth year in a row since 2016.
