PHUKET CITY: Revenue collected from excise tax in Phuket so far this fiscal year, from October 1, 2005 to July 31, 2006, is about 145 million baht, some 6 million baht above projections, the Phuket Excise Office has reported.
Phuket Excise Office chief Supatra Horsrisamphan said the figures included fees collected for permission to sell alcohol, tobacco and playing cards as well as taxes on the sale of fuel, cars, alcoholic beverages and electricity.
K. Supatra noted an increase in taxes collected from spas, as more new spas had opened in the province and were taking advantage of the post-tsunami economic recovery.
