‘Tax payers, practitioners face problems in Valley’
Srinagar, June 15: Appealing the Income Tax Department to adopt “humane approach” in achieving its targets in Kashmir, a delegation of Income Tax Bar of Islamabad (Anantnag) and Pulwama today said the tax practitioners and tax payers were facing immense problems in the Valley.
The delegation which called on chief commissioner Income Tax Department, K S Pathania, said that every caution needs to be taken to ensure that the people are not harassed and the general public does not feel scared.
The delegation led by Nazir Ahmad Shikari Chartered Accountant said the business community in the Valley had lost almost 1/3rd of the total working hours in the last three years to prolonged strikes and curfews. “Under these circumstances the incomes and profits of the business community have taken a severe beating which may even result into negative growth in the income tax collections of the department for the Kashmir valley,” it said.
“As the Income Tax Department fixes region wise targets, the officers of the department sometimes tend to go for a wild hunt which widens the gap between the department and the civil society,” it said.The Chief Commissioner, according to a statement issued by the Bar, gave a patient hearing to the delegation and conveyed that the department was conscious of the conditions of the business community of Kashmir.
