Ja: Taxing double standard

THE GOVERNMENT is drafting legislation to prevent or reduce the frequency with which Government agencies pile-up and withhold millions of dollars in income tax deductions.

Senate Leader Burchell Whiteman, who tabled a bill last Thursday that will see persons paying up to $100,000 in fines or sent to prison for up to two years for making or helping to make false income tax declarations, was responding to concerns from Opposition Senator Bruce Golding.
Mr. Golding had charged that Government agencies were being let off the hook while citizens were being penalised when they do not pay their income tax in the specified time.
