Guam - With the government already $16 million behind in collections for the current fiscal year, Rev & Tax Director Art Ilagan is asking for $3,000,000 more for next year.  The balancing act for the coming fiscal year has already begun, and Ilagan says his agency must have more money to hire personnel for collections, enforcement and compliance.

"All these other agencies that rely on the General Fund, when they're short they always seem to find money but when Rev & Tax asks we are an agency that generates money - when we ask for money it seems to be very difficult for us to find money," the director explained.

Ilagan reiterated what he's said for years that by giving him a million dollars to hire and train personnel, his agency will be able to collect at least $3,000,000.
