More than six weeks after Kaieteur News reported on the seizure of two luxury cars from a city auto dealer,Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale, the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) has confirmed that there was an attempt to evade taxes.The GRA, in a release, yesterday, said that the two Jaguars, which are usually over 3,000cc, were declared as 1,498cc according to Customs entries.The seized Jaguar cars.“Subsequent to this, duty and taxes were paid amounting to over $3.9M rather than the $10.6 M that would have been paid had the declarations been correct. On June 14,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, last,Wholesale Jerseys From China, following an investigation the vehicles were detained and held in the Customs and Trade Administration compound. On July 23, 2010 the vehicles were removed and secured at the Warehouse located at Eccles, East Bank Demerara.”According to the agency, the matter in question was detected as a result of the initiative taken by GRA to minimise tax evasion and avoidance; and the mechanisms and internal control measures that have been put in place to protect revenue and prevent revenue losses.“It has been the observation of the revenue authority that many members of the business community have been utilising every means necessary to avoid paying the necessary duties and taxes on their imports. Common in this scheme is the under-declaration of the actual value of goods.“This practice has resulted in the state being denied revenues that are due thereby resulting in hindrances to the overall development of the country.”According to GRA Commissioner-General,Wholesale NFL Jerseys China, Khurshid Sattaur, the agency will not condone such practices. Any evidence of tax evasion will result in the guilty parties being fined and prosecuted.According to GRA, maintaining its integrity has always been the primary concern and a number of measures have been put in place to reduce and eventually prevent tax evasion and revenue loss.GRA again contended that the publication of information can compromise ongoing investigation and is always cause for consternation.“The most recent being the July 29, 2010 article published in the Kaieteur Newspaper with a heading,Cheap Liverpool Shirts, ‘GRA seizes luxury cars in tax evasion probe’.”GRA also accused Kaieteur News of publishing the story without first making contact.In late July, GRA had condemned the Kaieteur News report on the seizure of the two cars and said that it believes that a number of its employees are being paid to release information.The GRA was specific enough to state that these employees are in the pay of Kaieteur News.The agency also condemned the publication of comments purportedly made by Commissioner-General, Khurshid Sattaur.In a press release the GRA said that Mr Sattaur’s expletive laden comments were “made off the record” to a reporter.“GRA is disappointed that the Kaieteur News in its vendetta to taint the image of the GRA and bring disrepute on the revenue boss twisted the comments made off the record by the Commissioner-General.”The Kaieteur News reporter, explaining the comments “made off the record” by the Commissioner-General, said that the official was called for a comment on the investigations.However, upon learning that the reporter was calling from Kaieteur News, the Commissioner-General, without waiting to listen to anything, said that he is not speaking to the newspaper and that the reporter could write “what the %#@* yo want to write”.Mr Sattaur then proceeded to slam down his phone.The reporter immediately reported the abuse to the Editor-in-Chief, Adam Harris,Discount NFL Jerseys, who attempted to call the Commissioner-General for clarifications. However, the official refused to answer.The GRA statement in late July did not dispute that the statements were made.GRA, in the past, has been encouraging media houses to make contact with officials there when writing on any issue.But Editor-in-chief Harris said that people dissatisfied with the general attitude of the GRA Commissioner General, and who want to ensure that there is an absence of skullduggery within the department, would release the necessary information.Some of them said that on occasions, Customs officers took actions only to have the GRA bosses cut a deal and overturn legitimate acts.
