LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) has restrained the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to raid the premises of the businessmen without sending information notices. The court advised the FBR not to conduct raid on the places of the businessmen without prior intimation.
The appeal was filed by the plaintiff named Crescent Dying.
According to the details, a two-member bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) heard the case under the supervision of Justice Masood Abid Naqvi in which counsel for petitioner Mohsin Virk argued that Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), violating Section 38 of Sales Tax Act-1990, is sending Sales Tax notices to the taxpayers.
Besides the violation of law, the FBR is also raiding the business premises and controlling the record of the businessmen. Considering it not enough, the FBR is also blacklisting the taxpayers.
