iciHaiti - Carrefour : Only 6.8% of taxpayers in good standing with the tax authority
Thursday, the Municipal Council of the municipality of Carrefour, together with the Directorate General of Taxes (DGI) has closed six companies that had practiced tax evasion for several years.

The mayor of Carrefour Jude Edouard Pierre and President of the National Federation of Mayors of Haiti (FENAMH), announces the continuation of this operation in conjunction with the DGI to compel citizens and businesses to fulfill their obligations towards the tax authority, recalling that less than 10% of the Haitian population has paid the rental tax, which is the main source of income of communes.

According to Mayor Pierre, the company managers (+/- 500), the schools (+/- 600), the lottery ticket sales outlets (+/- 400) and the factories set up in the commune of Carrefour, all seek to escape the fiscal control of the town hall.

"Of the 102,000 built properties, only 7,000 (6.8%) are in good standing with the tax authorities," says Jude Édouard Pierre, who announces that the Town Hall will go from words to deeds.

Justifying this change of attitude because of the serious financial difficulties facing the communal administration, evoking, due to lack of sufficient tax revenues, the interruption of several road and sidewalk construction projects, not to mention the employees of the Town Hall who are struggling to collect their salaries regularly... As a result, the Carrefour City Council intends to redouble its efforts to broaden its tax base and ensure the continuity of its projects and services for the benefit of citizens of the town says Mayor Pierre.
