Lahore: A spokesman of Punjab Finance Department has said that in order to further facilitate the taxpayers, the Punjab Revenue Authority (PRA) has again extended the due dates of tax payment and filling of returns for the tax period July, 2012 under the Punjab Sales Tax on Services Act, 2012 and rules made there under. He said that the new date for payment and e-filling of returns is 7th September, 2012 and this extension has been granted in view of 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-enrolment on PRA web-portal. They are re-arranging their tax records to work out the tax liabilities of Punjab sales tax and have approached PRA for further extension of the due date for the tax period of July, 2012, he added. He said that this extension of due date is available to all categories of registered person including withholding agents.
The spokesman said that PRA’s help line 042-37111632 and e-mail facility on firstname.lastname@example.org shall remain open and available round the clock. The taxpayers may immediately obtain their e-enrolments, make payments of due tax amounts and file their Punjab sales tax returns, the spokesman concluded.
