Japanese car makers are urging Japanese government officials to simplify and reduce the car tax burden on consumers. The Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) plans to submit a package of vehicle tax proposals this fall according to Japan Auto Trends, the JAMA newsletter. Yoshihide Munekuni, Honda chairman and JAMA chairman said, "Domestic car users are at present saddled with a complex and excessively burdensome set of automobile taxes. Automakers want to enhance the overall rewards of vehicle ownership."
