The Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) says it is taken aback by a report in the Thursday June 21, 2018 edition of FrontPage Africa Newspaper, which insinuated that the Commissioner General has “refused” to honor a ruling by the Tax Court in a refund case involving Bridgeway Corporation.

The Court handed down a ruling into the case involving the LRA vs. Bridgeway Corporation, and the LRA has been looking into the ruling. According to a statement on the LRA’s Facebook page, the authority says it wonders how can this amount to refusing to honor a ruling from Tax Court.

“Contrary to the media report, the LRA and its Commissioner General Elfrieda Stewart Tamba have no intentions whatsoever to disrespect the court, which is the arbiter of justice in the country,” the statement said.

The LRA refutes claims by FrontPage Africa that lawyers of the LRA along with Commissioner General Tamba “failed to attend a meeting arranged by the court” on the matter on Tuesday, June 19, 2018.

The LRA clarifies that it received no prior notice for said meeting and was therefore not in the know of any meeting on said date.

The LRA says it is opened to any meeting and discussion on matters affecting the collection of lawful revenue in the best interest of the country.

The LRA categorically state that it did not snub and has no reason to snub the Tax Court’s order as reported by FrontPage Africa. Paper would have gotten the right information had it contacted the Authority before publishing as it had done in the past.
