Lahore: Punjab Revenue Authority has extended the due dates of tax payment and filing of returns for the tax period July, 2012 under the Punjab Sales Tax on Services Act, 2012 and rules made thereunder. The new dates are 25th August and 28th August for tax payment and filing of returns respectively. This extension has been granted in view of Eid holidays and keeping in view the fact that PRA has started collection of Punjab sales tax with effect from July, 2012 and there are several taxpayers who are still obtaining their e-enrolments on PRA web-portal.
PRA’s helpline 042-37111632 and e-mail facility on firstname.lastname@example.org shall remain open and available during Eid holidays as well. The taxpayers may obtain their e-enrolments even during the holidays. PRA has also requested the National Bank of Pakistan to keep its designated branches open till the evening of 25th August so that taxpayers may make payments of tax even in the evening.
