The general public is advised to be on the lookout for persons impersonating Guyana Revenue Authority Officers, specifically within the Essequibo and Berbice areas.
If you are approached by someone claiming to be an Officer of the GRA, request proof of identification and take note of the identification number and name of the individual.
Additionally, the GRA would like to remind the general public that the issuance of Malt, Wine and Liquor, Trade and Miscellaneous licenses can only be done at the GRA offices. Officers of the GRA are NOT authorised to collect monies from taxpayers. All payments for licenses or taxes should ONLY be made to cashiers at the GRA headquarter or any of its Integrated Regional Tax Offices located across the country, where an official receipt will be issued.
You can verify the legitimacy of an Officer's ID or any activity they are carrying out on behalf of the Authority by calling 227-6060 Exts. 3201-3208 or 4105-6.
