The Inland Revenue Department (IRD) looks forward to taxpayers with outstanding liabilities taking advantage of the amnesty period to clear off all outstanding sums owed to the department.

The IRD says taxpayers are encouraged to bring their filing up to date and clear off any existing liabilities to become compliant once again.

  1. It just doesn’t seem right to have the government owe you taxes and 8 years later, they can’t pay you. Surely we can do better than this? In this modern age of technology? But if you file late, you’re penalized. Come on!

  2. Well this is a kick that st lucians got from pjp after promising to pay people their tax returns during his first 100 days in office. Instead of paying the returns they owe to st lucians they now asking st lucians to come and pay what they owe. 不不不不不不不不不不不不不 look what labar did

  3. So what is the interest rate on the refunds which are owed to taxpayers for years? The same way government wants their outstanding amounts settled, don’t you think the tax payers need theirs?? These refunds should be payed as soon as the clients file because it’s their money. It is always a win situation for IRD….finding all means to squeeze the lower and middle income tax payers and giving the businesses who can afford to pay, tax relief. Then that new income tax proposal is the icing on the cake. Please explain how this is a government for the people when persons are being shoved into a lower class and being asked to stay without….

  4. I do not understand how taxes are owed when we the employees are not the ones paying ourselves. We do not determine how much we are taxed and then every tax season to hear you owe is not fair.

  5. And when will y’all pay the people y’all owe? I have refunds outstanding from 2010 – 2020. I haven’t seen a cent yet. Give us our effing money.
