PETALING JAYA: The Road Transport Department (JPJ) has denied rumours of an increase in road tax for motor vehicles of 880cc and above starting January next year.
“The information is fake, and has been spread through social media and WhatsApp applications lately.
“The department views this matter seriously as it can cause misunderstanding among the public,” JPJ said in a statement Monday.
The rumours started earlier in the day and began circulating on social media that road tax would go up by 25%.
JPJ advised the public not to believe information from social media, and to get in touch with the authorities directly instead of spreading unverified information.
