No more sales tax to bury the dead


The government of Antigua and Barbuda says it has made good on a United Progressive Party manifesto promise to remove Antigua Barbuda Sales Tax on funeral services.

The Cabinet announced today that it confirmed its decision to waive the ABST on funerals which it claims was imposed by the previous administration in 2006.

The UPP promised in March 2018, during the election campaign, to remove the ABST on funerals but prime minister Gaston Browne adopted the idea saying that it was workable.

Since coming to office in 2014, the ABLP Administration claims to have been waiving the ABST on funerals that cost $7,000 to $8,000 dollars, “and the two funeral homes have been passing on the savings to customers burying their loved-ones.”
