Abdel Azim Hussein tapped as new Tax Authority head

MOVES- Finance Minister Mohamed Maait tapped Abdel Azim Hussein as the new Tax Authority head, succeeding Emad Samy, Al Masry Al Youm reports. Samy’s one-year term leading the authority came to an end earlier this week and he will reach retirement age in February. Abdel Azim’s primary focus during his tenure will be to digitize all tax payments and the authority’s services. He told us yesterday that he aims to make it easier for taxpayers to file while simultaneously increasing the state’s tax revenues.
