Robust Tax Collection Scheme Launched

first_imgFinance Minister, Amara Mohammed Konneh at a press conference yesterday in Monrovia, vowed to declare a robust tax collection scheme aimed at revamping the country’s revenue sector. The Minister declaration is made in the face of revenue shortfalls against which the Ministry has launched “stringent technical, administrative and legal measures to recover revenue for the remaining of fiscal year,” (2013/2014.) As part of the measures, Minister Konneh disclosed that the MOF has set up additional revenue mobilization task forces to ensure that the exercise yields the expected result. “We have increased our tax awareness; reorganized our tax administration personnel to ensure the most effective distribution of talent and responsibility to meet our revenue targets going forward.” Additionally, Mr. Konneh said that the MOF has identified and met with “delinquent taxpayers to give them time to settle their tax obligations, and we are at the same time, working with the Ministry of Justice, and the Board of Tax Appeals to prepare litigations (law suits) against those who fail to pay their taxes.” As part of the exercise also, the Minister said these short-term measures are intended to improve revenue collection, with specific emphasis on “spot verification of taxpayers to validate their payments.”Also, there are plans by the MOF to institute a major crackdown on delinquent taxpayers, which include publishing the list of persons, businesses and public institutions with outstanding tax obligations; and initiating legal proceedings against them to recover taxes; enforcement of internal controls at the system level and stronger coordination within the team to mitigate risks, undertaking an anti-smuggling operation.This aspect of the collection scheme, Mr. Konneh said, will take place on the customs side by monitoring of transhipment through the border, and conducting rigorous (thorough) post clearance audits to close revenue leakages resulting from dishonesty among some taxpayers. “With these actions and plans, we expect improvement in the collection of taxes on income, goods and services,” Minister Konneh declared.Budget PerformanceAs of the budget performance (2013/14), Minister Konned noted among other things that there was a lot of work to do, and all cost a lot of money to be made. Development, he said, is a difficult and very expensive undertaking, and therefore, the approved budget for this year amounted to US$582.9m, but was revised downward to US$560.3m, based on assessed revenue risks.However, he said, “some of our projections for the various kinds of revenue were overly ambitious, and were based o the assumption that the good performance of last year would, within each category, continue.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

BUDGET REACTION – McHUGH SAYS TOUGH BUDGET IS PRO ENTERPRISE

first_imgFine Gael TD Joe McHugh has said that Minister for Finance Michael Noonan TD’s third budget, announced today, as “a tough set of measures that is pro-enterprise and offers hope to Donegal’s core industries.Joe McHugh TDReacting to Minister Noonan’s Budget 2014 speech from his Leinster House office, Deputy McHugh said “Today the Government has announced a Budget for the next 12 months which includes many tough measures. This country has reduced its spending-receipts deficit from 30% in 2010 to 4.8% in 2013.“That massive but necessary adjustment involves changes that are difficult for many ordinary people. Minister Noonan’s budget today includes tough measures, is pro-enterprise and offers hope to Donegal’s core industries. “This is a pro-enterprise budget. The Budget’s 13.5% tax break on investment in home renovation, up to a maximum of a €3,400 tax break on investment of up to €30,000, will give life to local construction contractors, who are a backbone of the local economy.“The decision by the Minister for Finance to maintain the lower rate of VAT at 9% is a relief for the tourism industry, which is crucial for Donegal. The industry has acknowledged that the reduction by Fine Gael of the lower VAT rate to 9% in 2011 has created and sustained jobs in tourism and hospitality across the country. The measure was to be temporary and was to end in 2013. Today’s announcement that it will continue is important for Donegal tourism enterprises.”He added that Budget 2014 offers a two-year income tax holiday to people currently on social welfare who set up new businesses.“This is a very attractive activation measure. I know many people in Donegal who are currently out of work and who have good business ideas but who are caught in a welfare trap. This measure may give these people the opportunity to move into entrepreneurship. “The Budget is pro-family. The burden of the Celtic Tiger collapse is being borne by many young couples, many of whom are crippled with Fianna Fáil-era mortgages. Free GP care for children aged 5 and under will be an important support for these hard-pressed families. I am also pleased that Budget 2014 guarantees that the pupil-teacher ratio will not increase. The announcement that 1,400 new teachers will be recruited in Irish schools in the next 12 months is welcome.“2013, and particularly last winter and last spring, proved to be historically difficult for farmers. Budget 2014 acknowledges this with a new suckler cow support scheme worth €60 per suckler cow.“The Irish people tasked Fine Gael and Labour in 2011 will building a new Ireland from the ruins of an economy that had been conceded to the European Central Bank. Today’s budget, though tough, represents another important step on the steady road to a brighter future.” BUDGET REACTION – McHUGH SAYS TOUGH BUDGET IS PRO ENTERPRISE was last modified: October 15th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Budget 2013deputy joe mchughlast_img read more

Three Israelis killed, 5 wounded in attacks

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week The Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, a militant group loosely affiliated with the ruling Fatah party, claimed responsibility for the shootings. Israel responded with tough new measures limiting movement in the West Bank, security officials said. Exit from Bethlehem and Hebron will be blocked, Palestinian cars will be banned from the area and arrest raids will be increased, the officials said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to reporters. The decisions were made at high-level consultations led by Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz. Amid the violence, Jordan’s King Abdullah II promised Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday to continue rallying international support for Mideast peacemaking and offered him help to take control of Palestinian lands relinquished by Israel. Abdullah, who met Abbas at a hilltop Amman palace, said Israel’s pullout from the Gaza Strip “must be followed by other withdrawals from the West Bank as stipulated in the road map” – the U.S.-backed peace plan that envisions Palestinian statehood. Abbas arrived in Jordan on Friday at the start of a tour that also takes him to Egypt, France, Spain and the United States, where he is scheduled to meet President George W. Bush on Thursday. The first attack Sunday took place at a main intersection in a bloc of settlements south of Jerusalem. Militants racing by in a car opened fire at people waiting at a bus stop and at others in nearby cars. Israeli rescue services said one Israeli died at the scene and two others died in the hospital. Two were young women, cousins age 23 and 21, from a nearby settlement and the other was a 15-year-old boy, Israeli media reported. The second militant attack took place near the settlement of Eli in the northern West Bank, relatively far from the first shooting. Israeli officials immediately condemned the attacks. “Israel removed roadblocks and made a number of humanitarian gestures to ease up on the Palestinians,” said David Baker, an official in Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s office. “It’s unfortunate that the Palestinians have exploited these measures to carry out these murderous attacks.” Palestinian officials identified the militant killed Sunday as 27-year-old Nihad Abu Ghanim, a local Islamic Jihad leader in Burkin, a village outside the northern West Bank town of Jenin. The Israeli army said Abu Ghanim was killed when troops on patrol in the area spotted an armed Palestinian. The man shot at them, and they returned fire, killing him, the army said. A witness, however, said two Israeli jeeps drove up to Abu Ghanim as he was driving down the road and he was shot him inside his car. A bystander was seriously wounded. Though attacks have continued, violence between Israel and the Palestinians has drastically decreased in recent months after the informal truce the two sides signed in February. In an effort to strike a blow at Palestinian militant groups, Israeli troops have conducted raids across the West Bank in recent weeks, detaining hundreds of wanted Palestinians. Israel also has demanded that the Palestinians dismantle militant groups if they wants to restart peace talks. “The Palestinian Authority has to move from the talking stage to the action stage,” Mofaz said Sunday. “We will not be able to continue in this process if the Palestinian Authority does not start taking concrete actions against the terror groups.” Abbas has ruled out such a crackdown, saying it would start a civil war. His policy of using negotiation and persuasion, rather than force, to stop militant attacks has achieved only mixed results. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

GUSH ETZION, West Bank – Palestinian gunmen in a speeding car opened fire on a crowded bus stop Sunday, killing three Israelis and wounding four others in the deadliest attack on Israelis in more than three months, Israeli officials said. Minutes later, militants carried out a second drive-by shooting elsewhere in the West Bank, seriously wounding one Israeli, officials said. Also Sunday, Israeli troops shot and killed an Islamic militant and seriously wounded a bystander in the West Bank, Palestinian and Israeli officials said. The violence was the worst since a July 12 suicide bombing in the northern Israeli town of Netanya killed five people. Israeli security officials have warned that, following last month’s withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, Palestinian militants would shift their focus to the West Bank. last_img read more

Bulldogs get win, but lose QB Shockley

first_img Coach Mark Richt doesn’t think Shockley will need surgery or miss the rest of the season, but he’s doubtful for the annual “Cocktail Party” game against bitter rival Florida next weekend. “We’re expecting to get him back this season,” Richt said. “We just don’t know when.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week The Bulldogs (7-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) weren’t nearly as effective on offense after Shockley went down with about 10 minutes to go in the first half. They finished with only 217 yards – less than half of their SEC-leading average of 454 – despite facing a defense that ranked 11th in the conference at 424 yards per game. After Tereshinski came in, Georgia basically turned the game over to its defense and special teams. The Bulldogs didn’t take any chances in the red zone, settling for three field goals by Brandon Coutu. Tim Jennings made a leaping interception just four plays after Shockley was hurt, leading to a touchdown that gave Georgia a 14-0 lead. Tyson Browning had a 52-yard kickoff return that set up a field goal. Coutu’s final 3-pointer came after Peyton Hillis fumbled a punt, with Mike Gilliam recovering for the Bulldogs at the Arkansas 19. “The defense definitely had a lot of pressure on it after D.J. went down,” Gant said. “The things he can do, he means so much to this team. To lose a guy like that is devastating.” Tereshinski did just enough to keep the Bulldogs on course for a spot in the SEC championship game. They would likely clinch the Eastern Division title with a victory over the Gators. “When your number is called, you’ve got to be ready,” said Tereshinski, who was 5 of 9 for 91 yards. “I think I’m ready.” Tereshinski, normally used in mop-up roles, had a couple of crucial mistakes, botching a handoff (leading to a fumble that was recovered by Arkansas) and throwing an interception. But Georgia remained unbeaten, which was the main priority. “I didn’t feel nervous,” Tereshinski said. “I just focused on what I had to do out there. Everyone stepped up when they had to for us.” The Razorbacks (2-5, 0-4) managed to keep things close, largely because of Darren McFadden. He rushed for 190 yards to set a couple of Arkansas freshman records. He also scored a pair of touchdowns, the first on a stunning 70-yard run. “I’ve never been more proud of a football team than I am today,” Arkansas coach Houston Nutt said. “They laid their hearts and guts out for 60 minutes. They went toe-to-toe with the No. 4 team in the country.” Shockley came into the game as the top-rated passer in the SEC and 13th nationally. He also provided a threat with his running ability, but that’s what got him in trouble when he took off up the middle on a third-and-15 play, went down awkwardly on the tackle and twisted his left knee. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A pair of crutches were at his side. With its senior quarterback sidelined by a sprained knee, Georgia hardly had the look of a championship contender. Little-used Joe Tereshinski took over for Shockley and the Bulldogs barely survived against Arkansas, a nearly three-touchdown underdog that gave Georgia all it could handle before losing 23-20 on Saturday. last_img read more
