Thursday, April 4, 2024 – Monrovia, Liberia – The Executive Chairperson of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) says that the entity looks forward in collaborating with the Liberia Revenue Authority and the relevant government institutions in the prosecution of those persons who are involved with tax fraud and crimes.

Cllr. Alexandra Zoe made the comments at the official launch of the Tax Inspectors Without Borders (TIWB) for Criminal Investigation held at the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) Headquarters in Paynesville.

Tax Inspectors Without Borders (TIWB) is a joint initiative of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) designed to support developing countries to build tax audit capacity. TIWB facilitates well-targeted, specialized tax audit assistance in developing countries around the world.

She said that the LACC has designated a team of investigators from the Commission who will participate in the upcoming training seminar for Tax Inspectors in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.

Cllr. Zoe urged the OECD and UNDP to aid with additional technical assistance and she looks forward to more initiatives from them.
