In this modern era, people spend their time on social media. But if you are told that you will pay tax on using social media then you will be surprised. Especially, if you have to pay tax on social media in a country like India, people can also oppose the government. But there is a country where people have to pay tax on the use of social media.
Let us tell you that Ugandan government has been imposed tax on social media. According to media reports, since the imposition of tax on social media in Uganda, about three million people have stopped using the internet in one-third of 2018.
