Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) is warning persons who are planning to travel overseas and have outstanding tax liabilities to resolve the matter speedily or face travel restrictions at the country's airports.

The TAJ says it will be issuing stop orders on delinquent taxpayers, who have undisputed liabilities and have been contacted but remain delinquent.
It said this will prevent such persons from leaving the island until the outstanding matters have been cleared or suitable written arrangements have been made to settle them.
This tax collection activity forms part of the administrationís on-going debt collection strategy under the National Compliance Plan, to counter the prevalence of tax evasion and wilful non-compliance.
However, persons in doubt are being encouraged to contact the TAJís Customer Care Centre at 1-888-TAXHELP (829-4357) or the nearest Tax Office.
