The Minister for Finance says government does not need to consult tax payers when effecting new taxes.
Ng'andu Magande told ZNBC news, that every tax payer is required to obey the law and pay taxes once they are enforced.
Mr. Magande was reacting to sentiments by some mining companies which are opposing the new tax regime for the mining sector.
He said those opposing to taxes will be visited by law once the taxes come to effect.
Mr. Magande wondered why some mining companies are concerned over the new taxes even when they have not yet started operating.
