Marlin-Romeo queries minister of finance

St.maarten – Independent MP Leona Marlin Romeo sent a letter to the chairlady of parliament on Thursday requesting answers from the Minister of Finance about “the abrupt deduction of back-taxes of civil servants.”

The MP queried whether the Minister of Finance Richard Gibson, notified civil servants of this action, claiming that “many complained that arrangements for repayment were already in place and no notifications were given.”

This is causing financial hardship on civil servants and placing them in a higher tax bracket, according to the complaints Marlin-Romeo says she received.
