GRA warns public of impersonation of its Officers
The Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) has issued a warning to members of the public that it’s officers are not authorised to collect monies from taxpayers, since all payments are effected at GRA’s Regional Offices and it’s Headquarters.
This warning comes in light of reports emanating from the public that persons impersonating GRA Officers have been targeting fishermen.
“Anyone who encounters these individuals are advised to request proof of identification since all staff of the GRA are required to carry identification cards during the course of their duties,” the report added.
“Additionally, it is advised that taxpayers note the ID number and name of any individual claiming to be from the GRA and requesting money or any other inducements.”
The legitimacy of the exercise can also be verified by calling 227-6060 ext: 3201-3208 and/or to make a report.
