AMMAN — Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour on Wednesday called for a swift endorsement of the 2014 draft income tax law, noting that it is a major contributor to the Treasury.

During a meeting with the Lower House’s Economy and Investment Committee, Ensour said endorsing the law represents a main reform requirement.

The premier hailed amendments introduced by the committee, urging its members to examine the law’s articles, especially the ones on exemptions and tax ratios, with great care.
