Accounts prosecutor opens probe into Cobranzas del Istmo

Temas:

The Accounts Prosecutor Office has started an investigation into the award and execution of the 2010 contract between the Revenue Department and the firm Cobranzas del Istmo to collect delinquent taxes.

The investigation was prompted by an audit by the comptroller that estimated the contract resulted in economic injury to the state of almost $30 million.

That damage was caused by the company collecting a higher percentage of commissions than outlined in the contract and by collecting a commission on back taxes owed by state agencies. Under the terms of the deal, the company was only supposed to receive a commission on back taxes owned by private entities.

The audit also found irregularities in the awarding of the contract, which was not publicly bid.
