Thank you for the amendment. Maybe is my presentation that makes you confusing. Actually there should be a "2.95 billion dollars" as the levy. But with the implementation of the exemption system, no tax would be levied. I don't know how to express this properly.

Re: Please correct the sentence

yslamac, can you give us some context/background about this? I don't really understand what you're talking about.
