Barbados Assoc. of Ret’d Persons (BARP)’s Response to Solid Waste adjustment

BARP welcomes the news recently appearing in a Section of the Press indicating that the Cabinet of Barbados has made adjustments to the Solid Waste Tax. We appreciate this first step in alleviating the burden placed on pensioners and look forward to a further consideration for those pensioners whose site value is over $190,000.

{APOCRYPHAL - NOT SUPPLIED BY BARP: EDITORIAL LICENSE} We trust that a rebate similar to that applied to pensioners under the Land Tax Act Section 6B will be granted to this group.

We are also pleased to note that the deadline for payment has been extended to December 31, 2014 and that all interests will be waived until then.

  1. The tax if deemed necessary at all should be spread out as widely as possible. If spreads out it will impact more lightly on everyone. Some pensioners have a higher income than the working poor of today. I am a civil servant and earn less than some of my friends with similar qualifications who retired six years ago, because of the continuous pay freezing, now approaching six years. My retired friends also have completed paying a mortgage, but I am still saddled with one. Everyone creates garbage it is better to charge, for argument sake, 120,000 workers 60$ per year, than to charge 28,800 each 250$ per year. My advice to government is to spread out the taxes and stop killing the ex- middle class- now working poor!
