In addition, the Ministry of Finance said that in the first nine months of the year, individual taxpayers doing business in the field of e-commerce are conscious of voluntarily declaring and paying tax in accordance with the law. The tax authority has strengthened tax administration and brought into the tax administration many individuals and organizations with businesses in the field of e-commerce to propagate and support taxpayers to comply with the law.
