Deadline looms to file draft permanent injunction

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Tomorrow is the deadline the parties involved in the tax refund lawsuit have to file their plans for a permanent injunction spelling out when and how the Government of Guam will pay refunds on time and fairly. In late-August the District Court of Guam 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.

There's been some mention of the government requesting for an extension but those involved in the party have not returned calls for comment.
