Finance Minister rebukes Smart City Solutions for VAT on Parking Meter Cards

Finance Minister Winston Jordan this evening in the National Assembly took up a concern raised by Opposition Chief Whip Gail Teixeira that Valued Added Tax (VAT) was being charged on parking meter cards.

Minister Jordan said in the National Assembly this is incorrect and ought not happen, adding that a statement will go out about the incorrect practise of Smart City Solutions (SCS).

Teixeira told the House she hopes SCS will refund monies to those persons made to pay VAT over the past few days since the coming online of the city’s parking meters, which have been rejected by many citizens including the business sector, and even some in City Council.

This is a developing story and Demerara Waves Online News will bring more information in a subsequent report.

      What is it about SMS that Guyanese are being kept in the dark? This deal stinks!

        Please ask them, Mr Selman. I can’t see in the dark nor can I smell from so far away. Take it easy.

        • Charles Selman

          Neither can I on both counts. But I am positing that SMS has a deal with King and others to give to the former a huge plot of prime land to build a multi -tier parking lot. Guyana still being sold out.

            Should it happen, it won’t be surprising. All are on a get rich quick scheme followed by an adios to Guyana to enjoy the cold.
            Guyanese have been sitting on their butts for 50 years waiting for others to fix things for them, resulting in
            them today having the leaders they deserve.
