Diesel tax exemption extended

The cabinet has approved the Finance Ministry's proposal to extend the exemption of diesel from excise tax for another month, to Sept 30, government spokeswoman Sansanee Nakpong said on Tuesday.

The diesel excise tax reduction was set to end on Aug 31.

The tax waiver on the fuel, which is primarily used in the manufacturing and transport sectors, is aimed at alleviating the rising cost of living. The scheme was introduced by the Democrat-led government.
