Two persons from Clarendon have been charged for failing to pay outstanding property taxes amounting to approximately $1.9 million.

Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) says Winston Delano Willis and Charles Apru Darby were arrested after it carried out enforcement action. 

Willis reportedly owes $532,122 while Darby owes about $1.4 million. 

The tax authority’s Special Enforcement Team supported by the Major Organized Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency arrested the Clarendon residents on warrants of disobedienec for failure to pay property taxes. 

The men were subsequently released and granted bail.

The TAJ is encouraging taxpayers to speak with its representatives if they are facing difficulties in honouring their obligations.
