CAIRO, July 29 (Reuters) - Egypt will form a committee to amend its value-added tax law, Finance Minister Mohamed Maait told reporters on Monday.
The VAT law is part of a reform programme that formed the basis of a $12 billion, three-year loan agreed with the International Monetary Fund in 2016.
VAT replaced a sales tax and broadened the tax base in a country where the government struggles to collect income tax because of a large informal economy and widespread avoidance.
