Haiti - Economy : Forced recovery, the DGI has already recovered 30 million Gourdes
"[...] The case progresses, that is to say, gradually, people begin to take steps ro be in good standing and it is every day that we receive these taxpayers. We consider the problems on a case by case basis, to solve them. The process of forced recovery, will continue because it is a permanent function, once the administration finds that there are unpaid debts, it has a duty to move towards these people to ask them for clarification about bills remained unpaid.
Currently according to the latest data that I have [...] there are 35 people who are longer on the list [...] these people came in order t osoleve their problems with the DGI, as soon the person comes to an agreement with the government, the departure ban is lifted, but when I say that you are in good standing, it does not mean that you no longet owe money to the government, it means that you have arrived at an agreement with the administration and you have a payment plan in your hands for the rest of the money you owe. From there, we think we're comfortable with you [...] I repeat it this is a permanent function of the administration, the process of forced recovery will continue and this all along the year [...]
We have focused on the most important debts [list of 66 people] who are most clear to us [...] this does not mean that this is a process that stops there, there are plenty of other receivables. For each of these debts, the persons concerned will receive formal notice [...] so they know they have to come to put its situation in good standing and if necessary, we will publish their name, so that they are informed, and visits the DGI, because there is a problem to be solved [...]
In this operation of forced recovery, directly and without counting the deterrent effect that the measure brings we already get 30 million gourdes my friends, in less than 2 weeks [...]"
