LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) has ordered the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to decide an appeal filed by the Big Bird Company.
Justice Aisha A Malik heard the appeal filed by the food company in which counsel for appellant argued that the appeal is under proceeding before the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR). So instead of deciding the appeal, the FBR is issuing notices to the food company.
Until the decision of the appeal, the tax notices are illegal so the court may order the FBR to decide the case.
In another case, the Lahore High Court has ordered the Commissioner Inland Revenue (CIR) to decide the case filed by the Anjum Taxtile Mills after hearing the comments filed by the appellant.
Counsel for the appellant argued before the court that the FBR sent served notices on the appellant for extra tax which was deposited by the appellant but, after that, the FBR sent another tax notice of Rs04million which is a burden on the taxpayer.
He prayed the court to kindly suspend the notice sent by the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR).
After hearing the arguments from appellant side, the Lahore High Court (LHC) ordered the Commissioner Inland Revenue to decide case.
