A protest organised by the Inland Revenue Trade Join Front was held yesterday in front of the department premises against the new Inland Revenue Bill. The protestors charged that the bill is drafted by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to slap higher taxes on people. The IMF has held back the third tranche of Sri Lanka’s US $ 1.5 billion bailout package until the draft bill is tabled in parliament
