Monday, April 14, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: Darrell Carter, owner of Carter’s Custom Upholstery, is in trouble with the General Sales Tax Department tonight after he was brought to court on a committal warrant.

Carter’s bill with the Department stands at $23,847.36 and the prosecutor wanted no less than $6,000 today to avoid jail.

According to Carter he could only pay $500 today and another $1,000 tomorrow as he is expecting to collect a payment.

Carter has been perennially in trouble over taxes and contributions as he paid only $7,000 of a $22,000 bill a few years ago and has not honored previous commitments to pay off his debts to both GST and Social Security Board.

Carter told the court that since a fire at his business on Cemetery Road a year and a half ago he has been having a lot of trouble, but the Magistrate was not lenient.

At close of court, Carter was staring down an overnight at the Central Prison.
