GST in S’pore to be subjected to GST

Posted on 24 August 2013

7% tax on a 7% tax will raise more money for the government to pay for increasing socialist spending.


In a bid to help pay for the slew of socialist initiatives mentioned during last Sunday’s National Day Rally, a new tax will be levied on an existing tax.

Goods and Services Tax (GST), from the end of this month, will be subjected to GST.

Having a GST on the GST will raise approximately another $50 million a year.

This is in line with the belief stated by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Thursday at a youth dialogue when he said that the government will do more but “good things need to be paid for”.

He also said that the government “does not have a magic source from heaven”, and explained that whatever the government gives out, will eventually come from the citizens.

Local citizen, Ping Fan Ren, said: “So I become the heaven ah?”
