RGD’s records disclosed that the Agency owes the Consolidated Fund and Tax Administration of Jamaica (TAJ) $102.27 million for protracted periods spanning more than five years. This amount comprises $14.09 million in unpaid PAYE deductions and $88.18 million representing unremitted surplus for period 2015 to 2017.” The Report also spoke to a payment plan which was not being consistently fulfilled.
