The new bill of the federal budget contains 14 new taxes that could burden citizens, president Masum's media office said in a statement on Thursday.

Internet, airport, hotels, restaurants, fuel, sugary drinks, alcoholic, honey, roads, bridges, Baghdad Municipality services, water, and electricity will be included in the new taxes, the statement read.

The Iraqi presidency has sent the budget bill for 2018 to the ministry of justice to publish it in the official gazette on Thursday, which means the bill has finally been approved by President Fuad Masum.

The budget bill for 2018 was a source of conflict between President Fuad Masum and the parliament since the president returned the bill to the parliament to amend it for contacting 31 items contravening the applicable legislation.
