Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera says one of his ambitions is to introduce a tax number for every citizen of the country.

He pointed out if somebody is given a tax number, it does not mean that the number holder should pay taxes.

Addressing the media, at his ministry, the Finance Minister also said the sole intention of the new Inland Revenue Act was to expand the tax net, in order to reduce the indirect tax burden faced by the masses.
