Farmers’ associations have engaged the government to reverse its decision to impose a 10% withholding tax on tobacco farmers without valid tax clearance certificates.
Zimbabwe Tobacco Association (ZTA) chief executive, Rodney Ambrose, yesterday told NewsDay the tax was retrogressive for tobacco production and he has lodged a complaint with the Finance ministry through TIMB. Ambrose said farmers’ associations held a meeting on Friday in which they drafted a letter complaining about the immediate implementation of the tax by the Zimra without any formal consultations.
