‘We Will Go After Properties And You Have to Pay’  - LRA Boss Talks Tough

In the wake of the struggling economy facing the nation and its people, the Government of Liberia (GoL) has disclosed plans to robustly enforce the law to ensure that the people of Liberia become tax complaint.

“We will Go After Properties in Sinkor, Camp Johnson Road, Broad Street and other places across Liberia and you Have to Pay,” the Commissioner General of the LRA, Mr. Thomas Doe Nah, intoned.

He said he does not care if people work in government before and had properties and are in the United States or other places and have failed to pay their property taxes because under his supervision said mentality will be changed.

According to him, the  little money they collect from the National Port Authority (NPA) and other places are not sufficient to run the country, and therefore, only through taxes the country can survive.

“We will apply the law; I am working for the Government and It does not require aggression rather action,” Nah added.
 
Addressing the Ministry of Information Cultural Affirs and Toursim (MICAT) regular press briefing on Thursday, December 5, 219, the LRA Boss stressed that there will always be a revenue shortfall once there is a revenue shortfall with the attitude of the people.
He encouraged Liberians to be more industrial, talk less and do more work.

The LRA boss said , if Liberia is to fill in the wide gap, it has to be Liberians themselves through the taxes they will pay to help move the country forward.

He expressed fear that if people do not support the LRA they will fail and if they do, Liberia in particular will also fail.

It can be recalled that the LRA projected revenue collection from July to November 15, 2019 in the tune of around $60 million has experienced shortfall, something that is now of concern to all Liberians.
