Singapore Budget 2015: Personal income tax rebate of 50 per cent to benefit 1.5 million taxpayers

SOME 1.5 million taxpayers in Singapore will benefit from a new personal income tax rebate of 50 per cent. This move, said Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam on Monday, will cost the government S$717 million.

The cap has been set at S$1,000 to ensure that the benefits go mainly to the middle and upper-middle income groups. The rebate will be for the Year of Assessment 2015, which covers income earned in 2014.
