LAHORE: The Federal Tax Ombudsman (FTO) has postponed the hearing of a case filed by M/s Mughal Iron & Steel Mills against the Large Taxpayer Unit (LTU) until the next date of hearing.
According to the details, FTO Consultant (I&M) Tariq Yousaf heard the case in which the counsel for the appellant argued that the LTU had failed to satisfy the appellant in refund case.
He added that the LTU collected excessive tax from M/s Mughal Iron & Steel Mills during the last three years. He approached the officer concerned many times but the LTU officials did not pay the refunds after the passage of a reasonable time.
At the end, the appellant decided to approach the Federal Tax Ombudsman (FTO) seeking interference in this case. The counsel appealed the FTO advisor to direct the LTU to clear the refund claims. On the other side the respondent denied all allegations by M/s Mughal Iron & Steel Mills.
After hearing the arguments from both sides, FTO adjourned hearing the case until next date for further hearing and directed the parties to appear on the said date to present arguments in the case.
The same case will be heard on the next reserved date. Hearings are adjourned till next week.
