DEPARTMENTAL AND
OTHER NOTICES.

INCOME TAX NOTICES

TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC

Every person, not being an employed
person, is hereby reminded that the
latest date for the submission of Income
Tax Returns for assessment in the year
1970 is the 31st March, 1970, and that
failure to give notice of chargeability is
an offence against the Income Tax Ordi-
nance rendering the person concerned
liable on summary conviction to a penalty
not exceeding ONE THOUSAND DOL-
LARS and in default of payment to im-
prisonment with or without hard labour


for a term not exceeding four months,
and after judgement has been given for
that penalty to a further penalty of fifty
dollars for every day during which the
refusal, failure or neglect to render any
document continues.
2. EVERY PERSON whose income ac-
cruing in, derived from the Colony or
elsewhere and whether received in the
Colony or not for the preceding year,
exceeded the statutory limit of $600.00 is
required to submit a return in the pre-
scribed form notwithstanding that on
account of approved deductions no tax
may eventually be chargeable, and par-
ticular attention is directed to the fact
that the term "income" is deemed to
include not only money but also allow-
ances in kind.
3. Efforts are being made to send
forms to such persons. It is to be clearly
understood, however, that the Income
Tax Department is under no obligation
to send a return form to anyone and that
a person is not exonerated from the
statutory liability of making a return
even though a form may not have been
received from the Department. Forms
may be obtained, on application, at the
Revenue Offices at Georgetown, Barrou-
allie, Bequia and Union Island, or in
any other district from the Police Sta-
tion situate therein or from the Income
Tax Department, Kingstown, where any
person requiring information in connec-
tion therewith is invited to enquire.
4. The form correctly completed
should be accompanied by all necessary
Statements. Specimens of the form of
account required from small traders and
from occupiers or cultivators of land will
be supplied on request.
