With an endeavour to tighten the noose on delinquent taxpayers, a team of commercial taxes department on Saturday conducted surprise inspections at 6 hotel premises 3 each in Jammu and Katra, 1 fitness centre and 3 traders having principal place of business in Jammu.

As per press information, it was informed that the move was initiated in wake of non-filling of monthly GSTR-3B returns by these establishments despite repeated notices,reminders from the department for submission of due tax within stipulated timelines.

Additional Commissioner Commercial Taxes (Adm) Jammu Shiv Kumar Gupta, informed that the concerned officers during inspections also took stock of business activities, transactions carried by the defaulters during the period of non-submission of due tax.     

The department has also formulated a list of chronic non-filers who are habitually contravening provisions of GST Act to evade tax deposition, besides ensuring registration of all the eligible business entities under the Tax regime to broaden the tax base and further legal action is anticipated to follow in succeeding weeks.
