Tax-evading drivers to be fined

DRIVERS who refuse to pay their vehicle sticker taxes will be fined come mid-November, the Phnom Penh Municipality has warned.

"Right now, about 80 percent of vehicle users have paid sticker taxes for 2008, but that means that over 20 percent of users have not fulfilled their duties," said Mob Sarin, deputy governor of Phnom Penh, in a statement last week.

Tax collection on all vehicles will finish on November 15, and those who have not paid by this date will be dealt fines double the tax rate, which differ depending on the type of vehicle, Mob Sarin said.

"From August 15 to October 22, the government collected about 11 billion riels (US$2.7 million) from motorbikes and cars in Phnom Penh," said Om Chorn, director of the Phnom Penh Municipal Tax Department.

He said that he expected the street tax revenue to be around 20 billion riels in 2008.

In 2007, Phnom Penh collected about $4 million in vehicle sticker taxes.
