Sandals Resorts International has filed a lawsuit against the Turks and Caicos government over a tax-related dispute involving its Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort.

The suit stems from recent allegations made by the Turks and Caicos government, claiming Sandals is on the hook for millions in unpaid taxes. 

Sandals, however, has staunchly denied the allegation, while concurrently announcing that the company would indefinitely close the Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort in January 2021.

Sandals went on to claim that it is the Turks and Caicos government that actually owes money to Beaches Turks & Caicos, with refunds related to taxes on children under 12 among other over-payments. 

Beaches is the largest resort on Turks and Caicos with 758 rooms.
