GST Department to Raffle 2016 Rav-4

On Tuesday, the General Sales Tax Department will be drawing the first of a series of winning tickets in a raffle. Shoppers will have the opportunity to win five thousand dollars on December fifteenth by redeeming GST receipts from purchases made from October at various businesses. The five-thousand dollar cash will be up for grabs every month until June and on July first; a 2016 Rav-Four will be given away to one lucky winner. Today, GST Auditor Roxana Anderson told News Five more about the initiative.

 

Roxana Anderson, Auditor, General Sales Tax

“GST is all about giving back to the consumers, which are the taxpayers. So GST is celebrating its tenth anniversary and what more to give up than five thousand dollars monthly. So we are raffling five thousand dollars every fifth of each month and you get that chance. And you know what you are going to win at the end; you are going to win a Rav-4 2016. Wow.”

 

Duane Moody

“Talk to us about how people can enter to win this money and the Rav-4.”

“That’s simple. Simple, simple, simple. All you have to do is demand your receipts and you get a chance to get one of the fabulous prizes that we are going to give away. So fifty dollar receipts entitles the holder to one raffle ticket. So it doesn’t matter if it is a two hundred dollar receipt, but you are entitled to one raffle ticket and you can come to anyone of our GST branches and pick up your lucky number tickets. Apart from giving back for our tenth anniversary. It is something that is automatic; as you buy something, you should be able to get your receipts. So we just want you to do what is right.”

 

On Saturday, the staff of GST will be at the Mule Park in front of Belize Bank in downtown Belize City between eight a.m. and twelve noon so that customers can bring out their GST receipts to redeem their tickets.

    It would be more than an initiative if the GOB WOULD put a winner for every district to incite the us customers to buy more and try redeem the burden of that 12.5% GST that is killing us. But raffling only one $5k for the whole country come on GOB you can do better than that.
