The Guyana Revenue Authority has been asked to step aside and stay out of the President's business!
Why President Bharrat Jagdeo did not file tax returns in the past eight years?
Well, we are told by reliable sources that a letter was sent to the Office of the President recently inquiring why these returns were not made recently and seeking an explanation why none was made for the past 7 years including this one.
While we are not sure what the constitution says about the Head of State and the payment of taxes it is noted that the President and the most senior public servant, Dr. Lunchoen must pay taxes says a source close to the GRA.
We are not sure what source of action the Revenue Authority can take, but it is noted that the President recently collected US$600,000 via the sale of his house, all tax free.
We await the spin on this one.
