The Ministry of Labor and Social Development has categorically denied social media rumors that expat workers will have to pay 10% tax on a monthly salary of more than SR3,000.
“There is no truth in these reports. There is no intention at all to impose the new tax on expatriates,” the ministry’s spokesman Khaled Aba Al-Khail said.
Social media rumors about the tax also claimed that the authorities consisting of the ministries of labor, finance and the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority (SAMA) were coordinating to impose the tax.
“Whatever social media is circulating about the new tax on expatriates is totally untrue,” the spokesman reiterated.
