Income Tax Department Pursue Arrears

The income tax department is gearing up to crack down on persons who owe income tax. To that end, reports are that a company has been contracted to pursue those arrears. While that may seem like a good move, reports to Plusnews are that some of the employees at the Income tax department are saying it is really an unnecessary move that will allegedly cost government some $15,000 monthly. That is the price that the company is supposedly charging to do the collections; though we could not confirm this. According to sources within the department, the contracted work could easily be handled by employees; especially since it is the income tax employees who have to do all the leg work for the newly contracted company, preparing arrears reports and the like.
