Can’t get tax refund

Dear Editor, I am a pensioner (TIN 111055672; IRD No. 228059-1). I am employed on a part-time basis. Repeatedly, I have tried to recover income tax refunds due to me for the years 2012 and 2013 and repeatedly I have been told by the very polite clerks in the Refunds section that Form 2 had not been sent by the government departments in Region 4 and therefore they were unable to process refunds.

‘Standards have fallen’

Dear Editor,   I read with comfort and measured relief the apologies issued by Stabroek News and the GTUC, via the latter’s attorney-at-law, Mr Peters, the excuses (not reasons) for their unwarranted disparagement of my integrity and public image notwithstanding.

It is all a political dance

Dear Editor, I think the President prorogued Parliament because his PPP/C government is in such a mess as a result of the numerous financial, political and social scandals, that he cannot face the electorate at this time.

Religious holidays are first and foremost religious holy days

Dear Editor,   It is interesting to note that around the time I penned a letter asking for a little more sensitivity towards the Christian devout regarding Christmas, and receiving much criticism for daring to add to the voices that wish to see Christmas as a more spiritual occasion, Ruel Johnson writes on how the religious community has failed society.
