LAHORE: The Lahore High Court has barred the Federal Board of Revenue from auditing taxpayers’ refunds and sought detailed reply from the Board in two weeks.
Justice Shamas Mehmood Mirza was hearing a petition filed by Mughal International. The petitioner’s lawyer Mohsin Virk told the court that the FBR illegally started auditing refunds without taking proper written permission from the Income Tax Commissioner. He said the Board issued notices without the Commissioner’s permission, which is against Section 26A, 36 of Sales Tax Rules 2006. The court, stopping the FBR from auditing refunds, sought detailed reply in two weeks.
