LAHORE
Special Monitoring Unit (SMU), Law and Order, Chief Minister’s Office announces the launch of “Token Tax Identification Stickers” in collaboration with the Excise and Taxation (E&T) Department.
These stickers form a part of SMU’s “Transport Sahulat Programme” (Transport Facilitation Programme). Member SMU Salman Sufi and Secretary Excise and Taxation Ali Tahir are spearheading the Transport Reform Programme as per directions of the chief minister Punjab.
These stickers will be available to token taxpayers across the Punjab from July 1, 2015. The aim of these stickers is to uphold the dignity of token taxpayers by identifying them on road and distinguishing them from tax defaulters at the token tax checkpoints. Consequently, these stickers will eliminate the inconvenience caused to token taxpayers at these checkpoints.
The government is pleased to declare a token taxpayer as “VITP” i-e Very Important Tax Payer. This VITP concept will be implemented in the second phase in all the tax collecting departments of the government of Punjab and will be awarded to all the taxpaying citizens of Punjab as the government believes that the citizens should not be considered important due to their social status but due to their allegiance and commitment to the law of their land.
Therefore, the government only considers the taxpaying law abiding citizens as very important.
The token tax identification stickers will be of three types: Lifetime, annual and quarterly and will be issued to the E&T offices at the time of payment of token tax.
The month and year of the expiry of payment is prominently written on these stickers.
These stickers are retro-reflective and contain security features because of which they cannot be replicated. These stickers will be displayed on the windshields of the vehicles.
