Judge to rule on legality of property tax forms
Justice Frank Seepersad will rule in an hour whether he will be granting the request of former minister Devant Maharaj to temporarily stop citizens from submitting property tax forms.
This follows an ex parte application by Maharaj before Seepersad in the San Fernando high court for leave to file for judicial review challenging the state's move to compel citizens to submit the property tax forms.
Maharaj through his attorneys led by Anand Ramlogan SC is contending that the property tax form and process are illegal, unconstitutional ultra vires, meaning beyond legal power or authority.
Two days ago finance minister Colm Imbert extended the May 22 deadline by two weeks after the rush to submit forms.
