SHEIKHUPURA

Newly elected office-bearers of the Sheikhupura Tax Bar Association have demanded that the Tax Department should stop its employees posted in Sheikhupura Tax Office from filling tax returns by their own instead of getting the lawyers' services.

STBA President Anwer Aleemi and Secretary-General Malik Nadeem Akran addressing the members said that the bar members guide the businessmen and individuals in filling tax returns.  On the occasion, Muhammad Mohsin Virk urged the new government to arrange adequate space for the STBA Bar Room, which is their longstanding demand to enable members to hold meetings in a comfortable atmosphere.  Former president of STBA Sheikh Inayatullah, Muhammad Bashir Sulash, Mumtaz and Mirza Nazeer urged the government to prepare the next budget in the light of suggestions of the taxpayers so that their problems may be addressed. Earlier, Chief Patron Reham Elahi Advocate in his speech highlighted the difficulties being faced by the tax lawyers.
