AMMAN — The Cabinet decided on Wednesday to abolish a 10 per cent sales tax on fresh food (vegetables and fruits) and reduce it for some other agricultural products to 4 per cent, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The government said the decision is part of a comprehensive review of the tax system and aims to protect those with low-income while supporting the agriculture sector and farmers.

The government stressed that the decision will also enable Jordanian farmers to channel their energies into the agricultural sector and reduce their financial burden.
