TAJ carries out Seizure Operation against Delinquent Taxpayer

On Monday October 13, 2014 Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) carried out a seizure operation against Shur Power Generators & Engine Manufacturing Company Limited for outstanding PAYE and Education Tax of just over $4m. This action was taken as the delinquent taxpayer had not honoured its obligations and failed to comply with a court order that was issued in 2012.

As a result, TAJ through its Special Enforcement Team (SET), in collaboration with the court bailiff has seized three (3) vehicles belonging to the company.

The Special Enforcement Team (SET), which operates island wide, is mandated to handle all recovery matters relating to chronically delinquent taxpayers for various tax breaches. SET works closely with the police and the court baliff in an effort to have warrants of commitment and distress ordered by the Court which are in default, executed and to carry out operations to seize assets to cover outstanding tax.

In addition to making arrests where Judgement Order is given by the Court the tax authority will also continue to intensify other enforcement and collections efforts to recover outstanding sums, while increasing taxpayer education and improving service delivery.

Taxpayers are therefore encouraged to speak with TAJ to make suitable arrangements, if they are faced with difficulties in honouring their tax obligations, to avoid enforcement
