Tax returns by September

Finance Minister Chris Sinckler says the Government intends to settle all outstanding income tax refunds by the end of September this year.

Sinckler gave the assurance this morning as he tabled the 2015/2016 Estimates of Revenue and Expenditure in Parliament.

He said they are currently 47,000 people still waiting on returns for the 2013/2014 period. Of that figure, Sinckler promised that 37,000 of these would be settled by the end of June and the remaining 10,000 by the end of September

All outstanding corporation tax refunds will also be settled by the same date.

With respect to Value Added Tax (VAT) returns, the Finance Minister said this was proving to be a bit more challenging and would therefore take a longer period to be settled.

    Each time I read the papers from Barbados I laugh and I know it is not a funny situation but the fools that’s running the government there seems to think bajans are uneducated people. How is it just last wk I read the people will have their money in June and now it will happen in September. What a minister borrowed the money and will pay it back in September that it had to be postponed?

      And my question to you is why would a paper put serious information out there that’s not accurate about when the minister first said the people would have their money. I guess when cbc video recording of the minister speaking was played it was not the minister speaking it was his clone.

      Someone being shot and pictures plastered on the front pages are false? Ministers deposits of millions twice in a day at the banks is that false? People trying to feed their families because the government are taking jobs away. When this is reported and it is false then the papers need to be out of business. Have a great day!

      Sensationalism create interest, which then lead to sales! After what was said by the minister, reading just the headlines would give the impression no refunds would not be distributed by June. However, 37,000 will receive by June other 10,000 by September. Regarding your last post, it supports my point. Having a front page story of that nature certainly created more interest than a normal Monday

      I am glad to see you went and did your research. However you fell short on the information that was worded by the minister himself on video. Yes you are correct about papers posting sensational headlines for sales. Where you didn’t do your research is you didn’t speak to the families that I hear of or from that cannot afford to eat or pay their light bill because the job that was held by a family member is gone. That didn’t come from the papers that came from the people living there.

      I believe you are confusing the two issues. Like all austerity programs, there will be some situations like the one you mentioned. I suspect you were too young to remember what happened 91-93 , where there was an 8 percent cut and thousands were sent home. The circumstances were far worse than we are presently experiencing. This is nothing new under the current depressed economic conditions. We should be concentrating on revising our economic , social and political policies to avoid again

      Not confusing the two in my opinion they go hand in hand. Yes I don’t recall the situation in 91-93 you are correct I might have been younger then and didn’t really understand or had interest in the economy. With that said we can’t look back then and say it happened before. These things needs to be addressed not just with talk but action. Talk isn’t paying bills for the person that’s depending on their money. I do understand where you are coming from but strongly disagree.

      Well if we do not advocate change in our governance system, it will happen again. Simply by just changing political parties and not advocating for change will put us back to same position again

      Michael Smart, When your government took over 2 and a half terms ago, there was no austerity programs that wer put in place by the previous Administration. There is no longer a worldwide recession and yet the island remains in a recession. when will these austerity programs end? Has the MOF seen the light at the end of the tunnel yet? How much longer will he burden the people with increased taxation and not create or provide the environment for revenue generating projects?

      @ heather Cole,First of all ms cole, it is not onlymy government, it is yours as well. I do not support D or B but try to discuss issues on this forum objectively . While this administration should take responsibility for the state of economy, the last one is not blameless. In 91-93 recession decisive actions, albeit painful were made , and by 94′, the economy was growing at 3.92% and there was a surplus of 22 mil of the capital account. This administration lacks in decisive leadership. However, independent financial analysis has indicated that there appears to be around very soon. My questions to you : Are we going to return to the same governance model when we have that change? Isn’t the economy of Barbados, private sector driven,and if so why aren’t the local private sector investing to improve the economy?

    37,000 will receive by June. The other 10,000 in September. It is prudent that we read the article in the full context rather than respond to headlines.

    Stupse! His word has no value. He said the increase in vat would have been for 18 months, and its still there. We were getting these tax returns since last year and its time to file income tax again. So if I’m due a refund for fiscal 2014 when will I receive that? since I can’t even get back my due from fiscal 2013.
