Network companies like Airtel, MTN, Africell and more have finalized the date to start collecting tax from each and every user who has access to social media platforms like Facebook, WatsApp and more. Unless you pay that tax, you will have full access to messaging, calling and many other related services.
However, these taxes will be accessible to all users who pay USH 200 everyday starting from 1st of July this coming weekend on Sunday. Therefore, to those who won’t be able to pay per day will pay as follows,
- Weekly…….1400 Ush
- Monthly…..6000 Ush
This was done mostly to eliminate people who use these platforms in a bad way, and improve on the government expenditure. This daily pay may seem to work for most Ugandans but every personnel must abide with the situation.
Social Media taxes to start soon.
All Telecommunication companies are now setting up strategies to follow, in-order to subscribe for this daily pay before using these platforms. These procedures will be through mobile money to subscribe from different companies as follows,
- MTN…..Dial *185*2*5#
- Airtel….Dial *165*2*5#
Lastly, to those under Africell, you will use MTN mobile money to pay.
