Raised Taxes for Burmese PR in Singapore (Unconfirmed)

Source: Myo Chit Myanmar

A Burmese citizen residing in Singapore posted on Myo Chit Myanmar that the Burmese embassy now requires all citizens holding permanent residency in Singapore to pay at least 200 Singapore dollars in tax a month. Anyone who disputes this would be required to produce the pay slip and the Central Provident Fund statement. (Note: CPF is a government fund which citizens and permanent residents are required to contribute to so as to prepare for their retirement. Each month, a salaried employee is required to contribute 20% of his or her income to CPF).
