S’pore to start taxing air to remind S’poreans of its importance

Posted on 09 March 2017

This will ensure national revenue in future.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe it is their duty to be taxed to ensure the survival of the country and its ruling political party, are happy.

This after they will be taxed for breathing air in a bid to ensure national revenue for Singapore in the future.

Jin Tat Lui, a Singaporean, said: “Since water, an essential resource, is already being taxed, there is no reason air for breathing cannot be taxed as well.”

“By putting a price on air would remind Singaporeans of its importance.”

Other locals said air conservation can be more effective if it is taxed sufficiently.

Another local, Kong Qi, said: “An air tax would remind Singaporeans not to waste air unnecessarily.”

“This will prevent Singaporeans from whining and complaining too much as it will soon cost them some each them they open their mouths to make a remark.”
