Multan: The Excise & Taxation (E&T) Department has increased its efforts to ensure recovery of taxes, according to a news report. The Government of Punjab had set a target of PKR 2 billion for the E&T Department in the year 2017-18. However, the department has only made 62% of the recoveries so far. Efforts have been increased to meet the target in the next two and half months.
In the endeavour to meet the targets, E&T has sealed more than 400 properties of tax defaulters in Multan during the past month. Those who have not paid Luxury Tax have been served with the final notices. Action is also being taken against defaulters of Token Tax.
