***** END* of part*One* ****

But, as THIS IS also A CASE OF “GENERAL / PUBLIC INCOVENIENCE ” or “Jono Durvog ” vs the GOB-Revenue Interests, so, the following FOUR Specific Suggestions

may kindly be considered, for such modifications as deemed proper, for submmission to the GOB, through the RRC- Regulatory Reform Commission / NBR, viz.

(1) the (sub) Section- 75(1A)(a)(iii) -which relates to the Subscribing of a Residential Land /Mobile TelePhone, shall be completely deleted / viz,

” the paragraph -(a)(iii) of sub-section -(1A) of Section-75, shall be omitted.” .

NB -Regretfully, it may be mentioned here that, the item of “Telephone” was not originally passed by the then Nationak Parliament, as the then Finance Minister, Slain / Late Mr.SAMS Kibria had withdrawn that Proposal from the House; but, the GoB-Ministry/ NBR mysteriously managed to publish / include it as a new Section- ’75A’ in the Gazette/ the Finance Act ( of probably, 1997, 1997-98) and [in the name of merger /substitution etc.,] subsequently got it ratified / passed by the next Parliament;

(2) the (sub) Section- 75(1A)(a)(i) – which relates to the ownership of a HOUSE or Flat / building of 1600+ sft, in the Urban Area, shall have to be RELAXED; by inserting a Provso, viz.

“Provided that where the building or House Property is occupied for owner’s residence and the annual Total Income of the person, including the Rental Income of other House Property(s), if any, is below the Taxable Limit, the Return of his Income, under the paragraph -(a)(i) of sub-section – (1A) of Section- 75, shall not fall due for filing.”

(3)the (sub) Section- 75(1A)(a)(ii)- which relates to the ownership of the Motor Car or Light Vehicle, shall have to be RELAXED, by inserting a Provso, viz.,

” Provided that where a person owns a single Motor Car for his private use and his annual Total Income is below the Taxable Limit, the Return of his Income, under the paragraph-(a)(ii) of sub-section -(1A) of Section- 75, shall not fall due for filing.”

(4)the (sub) Section-75(1A)(g ) – which relates to a person having a Tax-payer’s Identification Number or T.I.N, in accordance with the provision of section 184A, shall have to be RELAXED; by inserting a Provso, viz.,

“Provided that where a person who is above the age of 65 or who is Crippled or under a physical disability and whose annual Total Income was below the Taxable Limit for each of the last two Income Years or who was not assessed to a tax for any one of the two years immediately preceding Current Assessment Year, the Return of his Income, under the paragraph -(g) of sub-section -(1A) of Section- 75, shall not fall due for filing.”

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
