Warning to tax dodgers
BARBADIANS WHO ARE DUCKING and hiding from the tax man have been put on notice by Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler.
The minister, who is expected to deliver the annual Budget next month and present the Estimates of Revenue and Expenditure in another week, said the Barbados Revenue Authority (BRA) was mandated to go after tax dodgers.
Speaking to employees of the NATION during the company’s Editorial Forum earlier this week, Sinckler said people who refused to pay taxes or who paid on underreported income were going to be targeted by the BRA.
“That is the biggest challenge for the BRA, the Government and the country. There are a number of people who work, who are self-employed in the informal and traditional sectors who are not paying taxes,” the Finance Minister remarked.
