No word on tax refunds

No word on tax refunds
06 Apr

Still no word on when Barbadians will begin receiving their outstanding Income Tax refunds.

This, as the deadline for submitting returns for the 2017 income year draws closer.

Acting revenue commissioner Wayne Forde says the delay is due to government's cash flow problem.

Mr. Forde was speaking as the Barbados Revenue Authority held a Tax Fair in Heroes Square.

The occasion was also used to launch a customer charter which outlines what customers can expect when doing business at the BRA and conversely, what is expected from customers.

Mr. Forde says it's all part of a wider initiative to improve the customer service experience at the now 5 year old organisation.

Several people who were having issues filing took advantage of the opportunity to get help.

The Holetown and Treasury Building branches of the Barbados Revenue Authority will be opening on Saturday for the next three weeks, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., officers will be on hand to help with Income Tax filing, password and email resets, and general assistance.
