The Inland Revenue Department will again be sensitising persons on issues relating to taxation, as it hosts activities to observe Tax Awareness Month, which is observed in March. The activities opened with a Church Service at the Kingstown Methodist Church on Monday 6th March 2017.
Mr. Kelvin Pompey, Comptroller of the Inland Revenue Department, said that the activities are geared towards improving tax compliance through public awareness exercises. There will be interaction with the media, a charitable donation to the St. Benedict Charity, and the usual visits to financial and educational institutions.
Mr. Pompey also said that the month of March was selected because it is the busiest tax period locally, and over the years the month of March has been used to educate, sensitise, and generally, to have outreach to the tax paying public.
