PAYMENT OF TAXES AND LICENCES

CAN I MAKE AN ARRANGEMENT TO PAY MY TAXES?

Yes, the Inland Revenue Department allows for taxes to be paid using Payment Agreements. The Comptroller must be assured that the taxpayer shall honor all the terms of the contract and settle debt within a year. The burden of proof shall be placed on the taxpayer. Where the taxpayer is uncooperative and fails to provide a collector with the relevant information that will assist in the collection of the tax debt then he or she is said to commit an offence as outlined in the Tax Administration and Procedures Act, 2003 Section 60;1, 2 and 3.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS DERIVED FROM PAYING TAXES?

All taxes collected by Inland Revenue Department on behalf of the Government of St. Christopher and Nevis, are used to support the economic and social growth of the Federation.

TIPS
