Residents within Essequibo and Berbice are being urged to be on the lookout for individuals impersonating Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) personnel.
The authority, in several notices published in the national dailies, is asking that residents ensure persons claiming to be attached to the GRA present proof of identification.
Residents are also urged to take note of the identification number and name of the individual(s).
Further, the authority noted that GRA officials are not authorised to collect monies from taxpayers.
“All payments for licences or taxes should only be made to cashiers at the GRA headquarters or any of its Integrated Regional Tax Offices located across the country, where an official receipt will be issued,” the notice stated.
Persons can verify the legitimacy of an officer’s ID or any activity they are carrying out on behalf of the Authority by calling 227-6060 Exts.3201-3208 or 4105-6.
