Tax Administration Jamaica’s (TAJ) Special Enforcement Team (SET) and members of the Major Organized Crime & Anti-Corruption Agency continue operations in sections of Clarendon today, to recover outstanding taxes from tax evaders.
The operations which began at 5:30 a.m. this morning is targeting chronically delinquent taxpayers who have refused to comply with the orders of the Court. The operations are expected to continue for several hours.
Yesterday’s operations in the Old Harbour communities of Marlie Gardens, Old Harbour Villas, Aviary, New Harbour Village, Rhone Park Estate, Church Pen and East Street resulted in 17 taxpayers making full payments on spot, while several others paid down significant amounts with arrangements to settle the outstanding sums shortly.
TAJ continues to carry out enforcement activities to ensure the protection of the revenue. Taxpayers are encouraged to speak with the tax authority to make suitable arrangements, if they are faced with difficulties in honouring their tax obligations, particularly where a judgement has been handed down by the Court. Failure to comply with a Court Order will result in strong enforcement action to recover the outstanding amounts.
Further updates will be provided.
