Vernon mayor handed fine for improper tax filings

Vernon Mayor Akbal Mund
December 17, 2015 - 3:03 PM

VERNON - Vernon mayor Akbal Mund has been ordered to pay a fine after some trouble with his taxes.

The mayor pleaded guilty to one count of failing to comply with the Income Tax Act in Vernon Provincial Court Thursday, Dec. 17. A second count was stayed, and Mund was handed a $1,000 fine.

“The outcome is simple, I paid my $1,000 fine that they charge you for not complying with the proper paperwork and we move forward,” Mund says.

The issue wasn’t that he didn’t pay his taxes, Mund says, but that not all the proper paperwork was filed for his business in 2012 and 2013, before he was elected as mayor.

Mund says all the appropriate paperwork has now been filed.
