A St. James business operator has been taken to court by Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ), for failing to produce books, records and documents as requested.
A news release from TAJ says its Intelligence, Investigation and Enforcement Unit prosecuted Kwun Nung Siu who operates Siu' Supermarket.
This was done under the amended Revenue Administration Act.
TAJ led evidence that between February and June 2017 it made several requests for books, records and documents but the taxpayer failed to comply.
Kwun Nung Siu pleaded guilty to the offence in the St James Parish Court on the twelveth of this month and was fined 300 thousand dollars.
TAJ says this was part of efforts to enforce the laws it administers, in order to improve trust and fairness within the system.
