AMMAN —AlGhad— An informed source confirmed to AlGhad that the government is primarily considering doubling the internet sales tax, from 8 to 16 per cent, among other possible increases on the telecommunications sector, seeing it is the fastest growing sector with the potential to increasingly supplement Treasury requirements to support the Budget.

So far, no conclusive decisions have been made to increasing financial revenue to the state from the sector yet.

However, decisions are expected to be announced within the next two weeks.

According to the government source who preferred anonymity, the Ministry of Finance has dismissed several options suggested by the Ministry of Telecommunications.
