Gonsalves disappointed with IRD on tax collection

The Inland Revenue Department has been challenged to pay greater
attention to its Revenue Collection measures.


The challenge was issued by Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves
while contributing to the debate on the Income Tax Amendment Bill
in Parliament last week.


Prime Minister Gonsalves, the Government has taken a number of
initiatives to reduce taxes and put certain measures in place to make
the tax system more efficient.


However, he expressed disappointment with the collection of taxes
by the Inland Revenue Department.
