The Margibi County Service Center (MCSC) through the Liberia Revenue Authority has in 12 months period generated the amount of eleven million seven hundred ninety-six thousand one hundred and thirty-one dollar fifty-five cent L$11,796,131.55 and seventy-seven thousand two hundred and eighty-three dollars fifty-five cent US$77,283.55.
Making the disclosure at his Kakata office on Tuesday, January 22, 2019, the Margibi County Service Center Coordinator, Sam Artis said the amount was generated from the month of January to December of 2018.
According to him, during the period under review there were six thousand three hundred and ninety five persons (end users) including one thousand four hundred and seventy eight female, two thousand three hundred and seventy nine males and one thousand nine hundred and twenty eight non-specified persons (all categories) as well as six hundred and ten couples.
Mr. Artis indicated that the total services and revenue summary figures tabulated are data collected from the various MACs within the Margibi County Service Center at the Kakata Administrative Compound over the year 2018.
He stated that the data were driven from transactions and other activities within upper Margibi County only, mainly Kakata City and its environs excluding major corporate entities and foreign-owned business branches that pay their taxes in Monrovia.
He narrated that the amount was generated from the various services the center is offering such as deeds registration, vehicle registration and license plates, driver license, school operational license, tradition and western marriage certificates among others.
Mr. Artis at the same time revealed that the Center has started collecting revenue for the year 2019 and January report will reach him soon promising to furnish the media with said report.
He then praised the Government of Liberia and Partners for the support stating that he is succeeding and the Margibi County Service Center is doing very well because it is blessed to get a solar panel that serves the center on a daily basis in the absence of generator.
“With the help of the government and partners Margibi will one day be the first in terms of revenue generation” he explained.
Sam Artis meanwhile said he is faced with the challenge of traveling with his staffs to the rural parts of the County to create awareness due to the lack of car though he said he has a YAMAHA Motorbike.
The Margibi County Service Center Coordinator added that he wants to take his staffs on the field for awareness because Kakata is not Margibi. He, however, said every time he makes a report he flags the issue of vehicle and his bosses always said to him that they are working on it.
He used the occasion to call on the public to make use of the center and ensure that it be on par with other centers in the Country.
