Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Government of Guam has proposed being given up to one year to pay-off tax refunds while the plaintiffs are pushing for six months. That apparently is one of several sticking points that resulted in the parties in the ongoing tax refund class action lawsuit having to appear for a settlement conference this afternoon. 

District Court Magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan met with the parties and members of the governor's fiscal team this afternoon in an effort to help the parties reach some common ground and find solutions to concerns that there isn't a funding mechanism for the 2012 tax refunds.The settlement hearing will continue Thursday at 2.

The plaintiffs have been ordered to file a permanent injunction by November 2, while the government must file its objections by November 16.
