Under the theme “be proactive, invest in our future, our taxes empower Belize”, The Income Tax Department of Belize held its 2nd Annual Income Tax Fair in San Pedro and Belize City on Thursday, January 13, and Friday, January 14.

The fair is a part of the department’s continuing effort to educate the taxpaying public on matters of interest. The Income Tax department believes that continuous dialogue with taxpayers can help them avoid many pitfalls, as filing time nears. There were brochures, pamphlets and forms available at the show room.

Also making their presence at the Income Tax Fair was The Belize Tourism Board – Revenue Collection Department and Atlantic Bank. The BTB team was on hand to explain the mandatory practices for adequate compliance as required in the laws that govern the licenses issued by the Board, while Atlantic Bank explained and demonstrated how to easily make payments through their online banking.

Hoteliers, tour operators, tour guides and the general public are encouraged to visit the fair at the Sunbreeze Conference Room. Schools are particularly invited to attend, to get a fundamental understanding of the tax system and to see how our tax dollars are spent. Go on over to the Income Tax fair and get a chance to partake in raffles of a number of promotional items and gift baskets.
