Government to penalize non-taxpayers on the island
Prime Minister of Dominica and Minister of Finance, Honorable Roosevelt Skerrit has outlined his government’s intention to penalize persons who continue to deliberately default on their tax payments to the Inland Revenue Division.
The Prime Minister made this statement in the wake of ongoing activities held on the island to observe tax awareness week, celebrated this year, under the theme; ‘voluntary tax compliance through registration, record keeping and filing returns’.
The Prime Minister says that government also recognizes the importance of tax revenue to the country’s development, and so, steps are taken to strengthen the tax administration system at the Inland Revenue Division.
He cautioned default employees and employers to contact the Inland Revenue Division before the set deadline, which is March 31st, 2011.
