103 Business Houses Sued For Tax Evasion
By David Seedee, Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, Feb 19 (LINA) - The City Corporation of Tubmanburg in Bomi County has dragged 103 business houses to the Magisterial Court in Tubmanburg for failure to pay government taxes.

Tubmanburg City Mayor, Rebecca Benson, said the businesses violated Article VI, Sections One and Two of the Ordinance of the Municipal Corporation of Tubmanburg City.

Speaking to the Liberia News Agency in an interview Tuesday in her City Hall office, Mayor Benson said the businesses have refused to pay the stipulated tax ranging from US$100 to US$550, as provided for in the City Ordinance.

She said the businesses failed to make payments of their taxes in January 2014 and refused to attend meetings called by the corporation on January 4 and January 21, 2014, in the county.

Mayor Benson said as such, the corporation was left with no option but to enforce the Ordinance of the Municipal Corporation of Tubmanburg by taking the businesses to court to get the payments.
