Petition against a R2,760 monthly tax hike

The Democratic Alliance rejects the Department of Social Development’s new absurd proposal to tax South Africans anywhere between 8-12% extra.

Those that earn R23,000 a month and upwards will pay R2,760 a month extra in tax. 

Even more shockingly, those that earn R8,758 a month will pay R1,050,97 more in tax.

Sign this petition calling for the ANC’s proposal to be withdrawn and binned.

The proposal is bizarrely backward in that it targets low-income earners rather than high-income earners by increasing their tax much more.

South Africans are already facing extraordinary financial pressure in a shrinking economy.

Object to this absurd tax hike by signing this petition.
