Director Excise and Taxation (E&T) Multan Ahmad Saeed has advised people to avail five per cent rebate on payment of property tax till September 30.
He said the department was focusing on property tax collection and that E&T Multan had registered 14 per cent increase in collection of taxes in July 2014, compared to the corresponding month last year.
He lauded E&T Multan officials’ hard work that enabled Multan to be on top of the list in tax recovery in the province during the last few years and promised to maintain the momentum.
In July 2014, tax amounting to Rs12.7 million has been recovered.
When asked about the impact of PTI’s civil disobedience call to people, he said the people were visiting the office as per routine.
