The car owners of 2016-17 model cars said that they receive “Sorry, the vehicle is suspended for less income tax” mistake and due to COVID-19, they cannot go to Excise office and no assistance is provided to user on the App. They also said that this is the benefiting agents to ask for the bribe to resolve the issue.
Punjab Information Technology Board PITB said that the Federal Board of Revenue decreased the income tax in 2016-17 and after that it was increased. The Excise suspended car with low income tax submission and the list is provided to the PITB. The rep of PITB further said that the list and tax amount will be uploaded within this week and people can pay it through the E-pay.
If the car has been sold then what is happened and why the new car owner should pay income tax of the period of last owner. Now it is the mistake of the institutions of the government and the departments are responsible but not the owners. There is no point to implement three to four years old taxes as it is the own decision of the government to reduce it.
