Do you know our entertainment tax is 25%? I can understand that high tax rate imposed on alcohol and cigarettes is justificable but why on entertainment? Encourage us to watch tv programmes at home?

Encourage us to watch tv programmes at home?No, No. It's more of encouraging us to support Michael Bay so he may come up with more interesting sequels to Transformers. :p

How else are they going to pay overbloated, overstaffed, less than desirable quality, (pay rise + bonus?) productivity and many unaccountable, unexplained, sensitive expenses in this land?.. THEY SERVE TO BLEED YOU ALL in many ways and manners. Our annual budget is merely a balancing act wayang..nothing more. Heads I win, Tails you lose.. period! Living in Malaysia is now EXPENSIVE (always been actually!) and the mortal rakyat get actually poorer and little savings from nett wages. House rental, car instalment, (unless you do without one), food (unless you cook home and minimally eat out), family outings (limit to window shopping only), Rising utility bills, etc, etc, etc... THAT'S A FACT OF LIFE HERE. Encourage your offspring to get seek better quality of life elsewhere...NOT HERE!

Singapore has GST of 7%, that includes entertainment activities in nature.

now u know that is what u are taxed for your entertainment, so be wiser now how u wanna be entertained, there is a choice at least. But sometime u dun have a choice i.e. like it or not, being entertained by those oh no clowns in our parlimen with my tax money.

Now I know why I couldn't get the tickets for the 3pm show on the 27 June. This guy sorok this pile of tickets to entertain himself!!

I think the 25% entertainment tax is fair enough. Going to the cinema is not a high on the priority list for majority of the people. And watching movies is not the only entertainment. There are many other entertainments that are free of tax. Why complain about the 25%? What about the other 75%? Why not save 100% by staying at home.

Well, I think entertainment such as cinema movies should be for all. For high earners, they are not concern whether the entertainment tax is 25% or not. What about those earn lesser? Why impose 25% on cinema movies if it is a healthy entertainment?

The 25% G'man tax is discouraging some lesser earning people to watch movies in cinema. Guess who they turn to if they want to watch....surely the friendly neighbourhood dvd shop :D
