Road tax rip-off

Offices have continued to overcharge on road tax, despite the Anti-Corruption Unit’s recent outlaw of facilitation fees. A Taxation Department report, compiled by Affiliated Networks for Social Accountability, said that there were still agents selling road tax stamps at a higher fee. Car owners often asked officials to fill out road tax forms. The official would then add between 5,000 and 10,000 riel (US$1.25 - $2.50) to the price, the report said. In September, ANSA reported 90 cases of irregularities to the Anti-Corruption Unit, it said. The ACU found 30 tax officials guilty of collecting facilitation fees and they were suspended without pay for one month.
