Can anyone tell me why the Minister of Finance has to personally approve of road tax refunds? Has he so little to do that he has that added to his duties? Why do we have personnel employed at the Rates and Taxes department? Are there any senior personnel there to perform this task? Is it that NO ONE is TRUSTED in that department?
I heard the Minister on Brasstacks a few days ago explaining to a caller about road tax refunds and why they had to stop them because hey were inundated with applications for refunds. They do not have the staff to allocate for this so the public will have to be screwed. He admitted that they do refund in certain cases only if the vehicle was written off and he just approved of two refunds last week. Whoopee TWO refunds! The caller went on to suggest instead of refunding why not do transfers and was quickly cut off.
We the public will allow this to continue happen unless we all protest infront the department and the office of the Minister. This is truly Highway robbery and an injustice to the people of Barbados.
