To Errol Hicks’s letter (Minibus taxi owners should be paying tax, January 14). I would add all the Chinese-owned retail shops where one can only buy for cash. They surely are not declaring the sale of goods that mostly, if not entirely, come from China. And locally-owned spaza shops have to try to compete!
