The Road Transport Department (JPJ) has denied rumours regarding the increment of road tax for vehicles with an engine capacity of 880cc and above to be enforced by January next year.
“The information is false and has been spread throughout social media and WhatsApp recently. The department takes this matter seriously as it can cause misunderstanding among the public,” JPJ said in a statement on Monday.
The rumours emerged on that day and has been circulating throughout social media that the tax will be increased up to 25%.
JPJ urged the public not to buy into such information in social media and should instead get in touch with the authorities directly rather than spreading false information and news.
