ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC) – Prime Minister Gaston Browne yesterday announced that, effective April, personal income tax will be abolished in its entirety.
The prime minster, who made the announcement in his presentation of the 2016 Budget yesterday, said this was a promise made to the people of Antigua and Barbuda during the election campaign.
“That was a major campaign promise and my Government honours its word to the people. Promise made, promise kept. Abolishing personal income tax is an important reform. Not only will it put more money in the pockets of the people, so that they can save or spend more for the benefit of the economy as whole, it will help to re-establish our country as one of the most competitive in the Caribbean and beyond.”(by Jamaica Observer)
