Sabah has implemented a 5 per cent sales tax on petroleum products sold in its territory, said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal.
He said he informed petroleum companies of the state’s decision to collect the tax last month and it should come into effect immediately.
“We’ve done it already, last month,” he said when asked what was Sabah’s plan to impose the tax.
This comes after the High Court ruled last month that Sabah and Sarawak have the right under the Federal Constitution to impose a sales tax on petroleum products.
