Lebanon parliament passes amended tax law

Published: Updated:

Lebanon’s parliament passed a contentious tax law designed to fund a public sector salary increase on Monday, Lebanese media said.

Lebanon’s parliament approved a $917 million rise in public sector salaries and a series of tax increases to fund it in July. But in September Lebanon’s constitutional council annulled the tax law after a political party brought a legal challenge and referred it back to parliament for amendments.
