Take advantage of tax amnesty—Imbert

Image

Use the tax amnesty which be­gins Mon­day to clean up your tax­es—in­clud­ing over­due land and build­ing tax­es—and es­pe­cial­ly since the Un­ex­plained Wealth law be­gan yes­ter­day.

That was the mes­sage from Fi­nance Min­is­ter Colm Im­bert and At­tor­ney Gen­er­al Faris Al-Rawi on Fri­day.

They were speak­ing dur­ing Par­lia­ment de­bate on a Mis­cel­la­neous bill deal­ing with is­sues rang­ing from the tax amnesty, an en­hanced pen­sion pack­age for leg­is­la­tors and judges, a change to the Free­dom of In­for­ma­tion Act and oth­er is­sues.

The amnesty start­ing Mon­day un­til Sep­tem­ber will re­move in­ter­est and penal­ties on tax­es and will ap­ply to all tax­es. Gov­ern­ment projects earn­ing $500m from the amnesty.

The Board of In­land Rev­enue will waive penal­ties and in­ter­est from Mon­day al­though the bill will be fi­nalised next week.

Im­bert urged peo­ple to use the fa­cil­i­ty to pay Land and Build­ing (L&B) tax­es es­pe­cial­ly since the L&B tax is payable un­der Gov­ern­ment’s Prop­er­ty Tax sched­ule. He said some peo­ple had not paid L&B tax­es for years and that had stymied their prop­er­ty sales since the trans­ac­tion re­quires such tax­es to be paid.

He al­so urged the pub­lic to clean up their out­stand­ing tax­es be­fore the T&T Rev­enue Au­thor­i­ty (TTRA) be­gins op­er­a­tions. A bill to gov­ern TTRA op­er­a­tions will be done in the com­ing days be­fore Par­lia­ment goes on re­cess.

can't get fking water / water pressure to reach a shower head, but they want to include pump as a value-enhancing asset?

If they checking that and water heater, they gonna start counting ac, lighting fixtures, door knobs and security cameras too?

exactly

basically, ANYTHING you have in your house they assigning it as an item that adds value to the property.From A/C to a light fixture that looks like a chandelier, to security systems. Basically, it's an "ah go tax yuh on everything yuh have forever" tax, never mind that the older these things get their value depreciates.

but allyuh vote fuh dat

Dred, the lady walk around and check the ac units to make sure meh neighbor wasnt lying...my neighbor's car porch is somewhat of an extension, they measured that separate yes....basically anything with a roof getting measured by itself...

Wrt to pump, a pump is a mc necessity...not a luxury...

They did 5 houses in my area today

I will accept responsibility due to my failure to vote in the last general election...granted my location is one of those 'guaranteed for x party' so even voting against one or the other is largely irrelevant

Apparently we is supposed to ignore you when yuh say allyuh vote for that because it don’t solve de problem.

The best solution to dis ting is to lie and den when they try to enter yuh house, threaten with violence and say you is a rankin pnm. Does work every time. :drinking: :drinking:

Was waiting for this thread to take a bump again.
They assessing residentials as normal, but the tax will not be implemented for at least 2-3 more years.
There are simply not enough submissions to reach the legally mandated threshold to start making the valuations enforced.

ey, i forget bout dat. last month they came to check me. the day they came, i had to make a spin, to sign up for e-tax( yeah, had to physically sign up for online tax).

so, i left the gate open, told my aunt next door that they coming. i did not reach back in time, they went in. they ask my aunt to open the door and go inside. she say if it lock u cant go in. they said they would call back.
i got those same questions. yes, the pump was a question. and OBVIOUSLY, i have no pump on the questionaire. it did hide up behind some galvanize that the two girls not going to shift.

they called to visit the agricultural land, but to reach there in the rainy season isnt such a good idea. that person said that if it difficult to reach they not going. there is a road, but i explained that the land had slipped because fire passed through during the rainy season, so it not stable, and the 4 wheel drive barely got me out, cause is only bison and tractor that goes that far.

Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley, says the United National Congress (UNC) has sabotaged the government's efforts to move towards Local Government Reform due to the legal challenge on the property tax.

Frustrate them a bit, ask for two forms of IDs and take photos of their faces .

Make them feel like they are Criminals.
