I do hope I am not too late in complimenting the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) for surpassing the 2009 revenue collection estimates of $86.4B which is a 10 per cent increase over last year’s collection. Despite the negative news about the organisation, the hard working Commissioner General and his staff should be congratulated for the efforts made to reach and surpass the target set in 2009.
Because of the amount collected the government is able to provide increases in salaries for public servants, build and maintain roads, schools, health clinics, hospitals, sea defences and other infrastructures which will enhance the government’s ability to improve the quality of life of all citizens, regardless of race, colour or creed. There is no doubt that the Commissioner-General and his staff have fearlessly and impartially brought many others into the tax net such as farmers, vendors, professionals and others.
Paying taxes is contributing to the development of the country and all Guyanese regardless of political affiliations should do their part to cooperate in the national interest.
