Guam - Individuals from various government agencies will begin temporary details at the Department of Revenue & Taxation on Thursday as the government ramps-up tax collection efforts. The Camacho Administration has identified ten specific target areas where they hope to collect, among them GEDA's rebate and tax write-off programs.
Governor's Chief of Staff George Bamba told KUAM News, "Each of the individuals will be actually examining the documents for these companies and their compliance reports and then matching them up with the tax credits that they've claimed through Rev & Tax."
Officials are hopeful they can bring in a minimum of $10 million from this initiative. Other target areas include reviewing real estate taxes and building permits to ensure individuals are taxed accurately based on the true value of their property.
