The promise to establish tax boards for both the income and property tax will come to realisation shortly.
The Commissioner of the Inland Revenue Department, Ralph Warner, spoke exclusively to OBSERVER media, yesterday, regarding the progress of the boards.

Warner added that Justice Albert Redhead will chair both appeal boards, but the overall membership of the boards will be different.
