Mund fined for not filing income tax return

The case was related to 2012 and 2013 and involved business activities and not personal finances

Vernon’s mayor has paid a fine related to a run-in with the Canada Revenue Agency.

On Thursday, Akbal Mund pled guilty to one count of not filing an income tax return in time.

“It’s done and behind me. I wasn’t withholding taxes,” said Mund.

Mund paid a $1,000 fine.

“It’s a minimum, standard fine,” said Dave Schaefer, Mund’s lawyer.

The case was related to 2012 and 2013, and does not involve Mund’s personal taxes but a company that he used to pay himself a salary when he was a partner with Inland Restaurants.

Schaefer says that documents Mund needed did not reach him in time from business partners and that led to the delay in filing with CRA.

“There were never any taxes owing,” said Schaefer.

“They (CRA) had more than enough to cover everything.”

A second charge of not filing an income tax return was stayed by the Crown.
