The head of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Haitham Al-Jubouri, affirmed today, Friday, the possibility of cancelling the tax imposed on phone companies in the budget for next year.

Al-Jubouri said in a statement to the Iraqi News Agency that the tax was imposed on mobile phone companies according to the Financial Budget Law of 2019, and it can be abolished if the budget law for the year 2020 reaches the House of Representatives, pointing out that the revenue difference must be given from elsewhere.

He added that if the financial budget law is not sent to the parliament, then the tax imposed on mobile phone companies is canceled, because the provisions of the budget law expire at the end of the year, that is, on the thirty-first of December.

And the deputy of Al-Nasr coalition, Huda Sajjad called on the parliament to cancel the 20% tax imposed on mobile phone recharge cards imposed from the year 2015.
