Guam – Local businesses Captain Kid Mobile Cafe and Captain Kid Cafe in Dededo as well as Polaris Guam LLC, are the two companies being taken to court by the Department of Revenue of Taxation and the Office of the Attorney General over unpaid taxes.
The cases were filed to collect Business Privilege Taxes owed to GovGuam. According to DRT and OAG, the businesses owe the government around $400,000.
OAG spokeswoman Carlina Charfauros said, as part of the lawsuit, “DRT has asked the court to issue an injunction or order to stop business operations until the outstanding BPT is paid.” He added that the sale of assets, including real property, is also a remedy available under the law.
DRT Director Dafne Mansapit Shimizu thanked the OAG and DRT teams for their hard work – saying, “We look forward to continued collaboration with the AG and will continue to refer cases to the AG for action.”
“Litigation is always a last resort. We encourage anyone who owes taxes to work with DRT to resolve their tax issues,” said Attorney General Leevin Taitano Camacho.
Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero’s said she would pursuit the collection of unpaid taxes to the fullest extent of the law.
