KINGSTON, Jamaica – Tax officials are warning that there will be no ease-up in the intensity with which they are going after delinquent taxpayers, chief among them being entertainers, businessmen and professionals.The authorities seized two high-end motor vehicles from the upper St Andrew home of dancehall superstar Rodney Pryce, otherwise known as Bounty Killer, on Friday.The authorities say the entertainer, who was recently stripped of his United States visa, was a delinquent taxpayer but would give no details about his case.Pryce, whose Range Rover and Land Cruiser were taken by the tax department’s special enforcement team, was said to owe millions of dollars in taxes.However, an attorney close to the case said the entertainer had been paying his taxes. The attorney said he had filed his annual returns and made payments, but objected when the tax department assessed him for far more than he had paid.Last month, the tax department seized a luxury Mercedes Benz motorcar from the Hillcrest Avenue home of dancehall star Elephant Man, whose real name is Oneil Bryan.
