Are you joking?

Today the Government has yet to decide whether to tax the RM625 rebate a year given to owners of vehicles with engine capacity of up to 2,500cc. Internal Revenue Board (IRB) chief executive officer Datuk Hasmah Abdullah said the board would discuss the matter with the Treasury.

The IRB must be joking for taxing something given as a virtue of compensation. In the mind of the people the government is paying to ease the pain of the fuel hike. Now they say wanted to tax us for the pain we are going through! Where is the logic.

This kind of issue should have been iron out within the respective ministry departments before they announced the rebate. Are they saying these 'joker' did not advice the PM? What are they doing up there!?

I call this 'slap with a kiss' than 'slap again'.
