In the wake of the struggling economy facing the Nation and its people, national Government through the Liberia Revenue Authority has disclosed plans to robustly enforce the Law to ensure that the people of Liberia become tax complaint.

“We will Go After Properties in Sinkor, Camp Johnson Road, Broad Street and other places across Liberia and you Have to Pay”, He intoned.

He said he does not care if people work in Government before and have properties and are in the United States or other places but have failed to pay their property taxes but under his supervision said mentality will be changed.

According to him the  little money they collect from the National Port Authority and other places are not sufficient to run the Country as such only through taxes the Country can survive.

“We will apply the Law, I am working for the Government and It does not require aggression rather action”, he added.

The Commissioner General of the Liberia Revenue Authority  also stressed that the inability of Liberians to contribute is responsibility for the gab in the sector.

Addressing the Ministry of Information Regular News Conference Thursday Mr. Nah stressed that there will always be a revenue shortfall once there is a revenue shortfall with the attitude of the people.

He encouraged Liberians to be more industrial, talk less and do more work.

The LRA boss said if the gap is to be filled, it has to be Liberians themselves through the taxes they will pay to help move the Country forward.

He fears that if people do not support the LRA, they will fail and if they do, Liberia in particular will also fail.

It can be recalled that the Liberia Revenue (LRA) projected revenue collection from July to November 15, 2019 in the tune of around $60 million has experienced shortfall something that is now of concern to all Liberians.
