    why is it that malaysia does not impose tax?

    Everything and anything are already double and triple taxed in malaysia.

    Example1:They will say that the price of petrol is cheap but they never tell you that you paid more than 100 % in taxes and you be paying bank loans for 9 years for a car.

    Example2: You eats at kfc or McD .All the ingredients and material to make a piece of fried chicken are already taxed.

    And you still have to pay additional 5% govt tax .

    If your question is regarding why there are no tax for foreign workers.

    It depends on what salary scale.That falls under taxable income.

    Just to "import" a foreign worker, you are already paying a levy .

    Levy is a tax.

    This country does not have a basic minimum salary.

    The govt rejected any ideas of setting a basic minimum salary.

    But the govt servants often gets a pay rise and bonuses yearly.
