MELAKA – The Customs Department in Melaka is aiming to collect RM1.96 billion this year, says its director Datuk Mohd Noor Yusoff.
He said the amount was achievable as the department collected RM1.93 billion last year compared to RM1.58 billion in 2016.
“As at Thursday, we have collected more than RM82 million compared to only RM44.52 million during the same period last year.
“The target could be met despite the challenging global economic condition. In this regard, we will continue to step up efforts to raise public awareness on their responsibility to pay taxes,” he told reporters at the 1Malaysia Customs Charity Fun Ride here today. – BERNAMA
