Income tax notice to dead person suspended

 
June 11, 2021

LAHORE:The Lahore High Court on Thursday suspended the operations of income tax recovery notices issued by the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to a man who died six years ago.

Justice Raheel Kamran Sheikh passed the order on a petition by citizen Gulrez Rashid and sought a reply from the FBR by June 17. The petitioner through a counsel pleaded that the FBR started issuing income tax recovery notices from June 30, 2019 to his father who had already died on Nov 29, 2014. He also presented the death certificate of his father issued by the Nadra. The counsel argued that the notices issued by the FBR were illegal as no recovery of tax could be made from a dead person. He asked the court to set aside the FBR’s notices for being unlawful. Justice Sheikh suspended the tax recovery notices and directed a law officer to submit a reply on behalf of the FBR at the next hearing.
