Finance and the Public Service Minister, Dr Nigel Clarke, has announced that a number of tax offices are to be rebuilt, while others will be retrofitted as the Government moves to improve service delivery in the public sector.
“For the upcoming financial year, TAJ will develop a mobile app to accommodate the payment of certain tax types, including property tax and traffic ticket fines,” Clarke disclosed.
He told the House that the design and planning phase for new tax offices will also begin in the upcoming financial year. This will lead to the construction of new tax offices in Portmore, Cross Roads, Christiana, Santa Cruz, St Ann’s Bay, Brown’s Town and Buff Bay. At the same time, the tax offices in Mandeville and Montego Bay are to be retrofitted and reorganised.
