Tax refunds plans due in court on Friday

Posted: Updated:

Guam - This coming Friday is the deadline the parties involved in the tax refund lawsuit have to file their plans or a permanent injunction spelling out when and how GovGuam will pay refunds on time and fairly. It was in late-August the district court ruled in favor of Jeffrey and Ria Paeste and Sharon Zapanta and taxpayers who sued the government over late and expedited tax refunds.

GovGuam had argued that the Internal Revenue Code does not present a specific timeframe for refunds to be paid out but the judge indicated the injunction could impose a specific deadline, such as six months. Magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan has been tapped as a federal mediator to assist in resolving the matter.
