Management Answers Your Questions

For Answers: Dial 5 For Questions: Dial 3500

Q. We want to know why Ma-
nagement doesn't do some-
thing about this tax problem.
Because if a man works
overtime, with half his pay
going to the government,
all his energy is gone. Why
doesn't Lago make a propo-
sition with the Government
to collect this tax a little
easier on the employees?
Because mostly now, all em-
ployees are refusing to work
overtime, in all departments.
I think Management should
know about this. Do some-
thing about It!
A. Questions relating to Nether-
lands Antilles income tax de-
ductions from pay in 1971
have been reviewed by the
concerned organizations.
The following information
should help clarify the mat-
The official higher N.A. per-
sonal income tax rates for
1971 were given to Lago late
in March 1971, and could
not be applied until the April
payrolls. However, the in-
crease in tax rates was re-
troactive to January 1, 1971;
so in April 1971 it would
have been necessary to take
out of pay the higher taxes
for all four months (January
through April). After consi-
dering this, it was believed
best not to take all of the
retroactive tax out of pay in
one month (April) but to
spread it over the remaining
months in the year. As a re-
sult, employees felt the ef-
fect of the retroactive in-
crease over the last nine
months. In 1972 the deduc-
tion for income tax is now
normalized since there is no
retroactive adjustment need-
ed to be handled.
In addition it seems that all
employees were not familiar
with the amount of the in-
crease in income tax which
resulted from the applicat-
ion of the new rates under
the new law.

In order that employees will
be more aware of the income
tax that applies to various
levels of earnings, we dis-
tributed with the January pay
statements an income tax
table showing the rates that
went into effect January 1,
Of those employees who
may have received refunds
for too much tax collected
in 1971, most found them-
selves in this situation be-
cause they had not advised
the Compact Section of
changes in amount of their
estimated outside income or
of changes in the number of
their children.
The Comptroller's Depart-
ment has already provided
employees with a Statement
of Earnings for the year
1971, the amount of tax with-
held, and related informat-
ion. If you have any quest-
ions, you should contact the
Compact Section.
There is no question of the
Company paying its taxes to
the Government with the in-
come tax money of emplo-
yees. First, it would be dif-
ficult to do. Second, it would
be illegal. Third, and the
most important reason, La-
go would not even consider
doing such a thing since it
would be morally wrong.
Q. I would like to know why
there are so many acting
A. The number of acting su-
pervisors is based on job
requirements and the avail-
ability of regular supervisors.
Both vary from week to week.
By permitting a significant
number of employees to
"act up" more have the op-
portunity for promotion when
there is a vacancy.
Q. How Is it that there is mo-
ney to build houses for Ma-
nagement members and
there Isn't any for regular
A. Approval or rejection of ap-
plications for home building
loans is not confined to ma-
nagement members. Any em-

gobierno pa cobra belasting
un poco menos for di em-
pleadonan? Pasobra awen-
dia casi tur empleadonan ta
nenga di traha overtime den
tur departamento. Mi ta kere
cu gerencia mester sabi al-
gu di e asuntu aki. Pone
man na obra!

C. Preguntanan tocante kita
belasting for di pago di em-
pleadonnan den Antillas Hu-
landes na 1971 a word re-
visa cu e organisacionnan
envolvi. Sigiente informa-
cion por juda clarifica e pun-
to aki:

E tarifanan pa Antillas Hu-
landes cual a subi oficial-
mente pa anja 1971, a wor-
de entrega na Lago na Maart
1971, y compania no por a
cuminza kita nan for di pa-
go di empleadonan te April.

Sinembargo aumento di Be-
lasting tabata retroactive te
January 1971, asina ta cu na
April 1971 lo tabata necesa-
rio pa kita for di sueldonan
e belasting aumenta pa tur
e cuater lunanan (esta (Ja-
nuari te April inclusive). Des-
pues di a consider esaki,
Compania a decidi cu taba-
ta mihor di no kita tur e be-
lasting retroactive for di
sueldo den un luna so (April)
pero pa repartid ariba e lu-
nanan cu ainda tabata keda
den e anja. Como resultado
di esaki, empleadonan a sin-
ti peso di e aumento retro-
activo durante e ultimo nue-
be lunanan.

Pa 1972 kitamento di belas-
ting for di sueldo awor si ta
normalize, ya cu awor no ta
necesario pa compania ki-
ta ningun aumento retroac-

Ademas, aparentemente no
tur empleado tabata al co-
riente di e suma di aumento
di belasting ariba nan entra-
da, cual a result for di apli-
cacion di e tarifanan nobo
bao termino di e ley nobo.

Pa empleadonan ta mas na
haltura di e belasting ariba
nan entrada, cual ta na
efecto pa various nivelnan di
sueldo, nos a distribui hun-
tu cu e resume di pago di
January un lista di tarifanan.
cual ta mustra e tarifanan
aumenth cual a bai na vigor
dia 1 Januari 1971.

Di empleadonan cu por a re-
cibi plaka bek pasobra nan
a paga belasting di mas na
1971, mayoria di nan a han-
ja nan mes den e situation
ey pasobra nan no a duna
Compact Section detaye di

Departamento di Comptrol-
ler's ya a duna empleado-

da pa anja 1971, e suma di

ey. Si acaso Bo tin algun
pregunta, anto tuma con-
tacto cu Compact Section.

Compania sigur no ta paga
su mes belasting na Gobier-
no cu placa di belasting ki-
ta for di empleadonan. Pa
di promer lo ta dificil pa
haci esey. Pa di dos esey lo
ta illegal. Pa di tres, y e mo-
tibo mas important, Lago
nunca ni sikiera lo consider
haci un cos asina pasobra
e ta moralmente malu.

P. Mi kler sabl pakiko tin asl-

Santa Cruz Senior Citizens Stop

At Lago during
A long row of about forty-four
cars, escorted by two police-
men on motorcycles, entered
the Grapefield Gate on Satur-
day morning, July 29, en route
to the Esso Club. Passengers
in the private cars, on an island
tour, were 133 Santa Cruz se-
nior citizens accompanied by
the Santa Cruz Parish Assist-
ance Foundation members and
a group of volunteers.
Ranging in age from 65 to 80,
the Santa Cruz elders, who look
forward to this yearly excursion,

Island Excursion
hailed from all areas of Santa
Cruz, from Seroe Biento to Maria
Maai, from Papilon to Kas Ari-
ba, including Jan Flemming, Ma-
cuarima, Sabana Grandi and
San Fuego. The group includ-
ed several Lago annuitants and
their wives.
The tour began about 8:30
a.m. at the Catholic Church at
Santa Cruz and continued to
the Savaneta Camp where the
visitors were hosted by the ma-
rines, and on to the Esso Club
where they were treated to
snacks and refreshments. After
resting a while they drove on
through the refinery to San Ni-
colas, and on to the new Air-
port Terminal. They stopped
briefly at the Strand Hotel
where they were served refresh-
ments and proceeded to view
the sea-side hotels and other
sites of interest which included
the St. Ann's Church at Noord.
The highlight of the tour was a
party at the Santa Cruz Credit
Union Building where they
danced to the music of the ty-
pical Aruban tingi-lingi box (bar-
rel organ). The sight-seeing trip
ended with a mass at the Tanki
Leendert Church about 6:30 p.m.
This pleasant day dedicated
to Santa Cruz senior citizens is
organized yearly by the Santa
Cruz Parish Assistance Found-
ation which is presided by Flo-
riano Geerman, a Mechanical
Supervisor in Mechanical-M&C.
