Civil Society Organisations (CSO) under their umbrella Southern Eastern African Trade Institute (SEATINI) have launched an advocacy campaign on tax.
According to Jane Nalunga Executive Director says the advocacy aims to empower citizens to participate in tax dialogues by debating issues that favour them and get amendments before budgets are passed.
Tax Justice Alliance members developed a road map for engaging with government this financial year. The road map gives detailed actions and timeliness on how cso will influence proportion tax laws in financial year 2020/2021.
Every year finance ministry comes up with tax proposals are presented to Parliament to amend existing tax laws.
“The road map is therefore aimed at guiding the Tax Justice Alliance Uganda members on their participation in the tax policy process, provide feedback on the final cso tax proposals, provide platform to discuss engagement of stakeholders in revenue mobilization, allocation and accountability processes, “Nalunga said.
Kacita Chairman Everest Kayondo demands government to put more emphasis on local resource mobilization to address development sectors agriculture, Infrastructure, Health, Eduction and sanitation.
