The Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia's (IRB) newly-launched Monitoring Deliberate Tax Defaulters (MDTD) programme will track taxpayers identified as non-compliant.

PETALING JAYA: The Finance Ministry has dropped another bombshell, claiming that the previous Barisan Nasional government hasn’t refunded a total of RM16.046bil of excess income tax and real property gains tax to taxpayers – with some being owed these refunds for the last six years.

In a statement issued Wednesday (Aug 22), Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng said the total amount involves 1,653,786 incidents consisting of companies, individuals, societies and foundations, as of May 31 this year.
