Social Services Minister Catherine Daniel says Government is utilizing the taxes on island to the benefit of Dominicans
Social Services Minister, Catherine Daniel, says the government is utilizing the taxes on island to the benefit of the people.
The minister was responding to claims that the government's social programs are being funded by tax payers money.
Daniel says the country has always implemented taxes on its citizens, yet it is only under the current administration these taxes have been exploited for the betterment of nationals.
The 2016/2017 budget which was presented by PM Roosevelt Skerrit was a no new tax budget, and according to Daniel, the government allocated more funds for their social programs during this fiscal year.
She says it takes a government with foresight to give back to its citizens in such a way.
