Islamabad Excise Dept Launches Online Token Tax Payment Service

Earlier this year, there had been reports that the administration in the Federal capital was looking to introduce an online system of paying token taxes to facilitate the citizens. The Department of Excise and Taxation has now established an online system that will allow people to pay token taxes for vehicles registered with the ETO in Islamabad.

Now, people will not have to visit the Excise office physically, as they can use the online system and pay the tax which will be received by all branches of the National Bank of Pakistan. In this regard, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) had been inked between the Excise & Taxation Department Islamabad and the NBP in October.

According to the sources at the ETO, owners living across Pakistan will be able pay token taxes online and the department is working on a framework that will allow people to pay property taxes online as well. Property transfer service will also be available online in the coming weeks.

Recently, the government had issued a directive for the general public asking to pay the outstanding Vehicle Token Tax Islamabad before 30th September without any fines. After this, the Islamabad Traffic Police in collaboration with the Excise and Taxation Department Islamabad started action against the people who did not pay token tax.


      • Oh thank you. Nowhere in the article this has been highlighted. Furthermore, last date is 31st December 2019 and this news is of 25 Nov and ProPk just released it now by copy pasting! Thank you for the information you provided along with a good advice about patience! Regards,

  • The article says all branches of National Bank will accept the Token Tax. So, right now I am sitting in National Bank branch. They have received the instructions but have no idea how system will work. I am the first person they are going to experiment this payment on. So, right now they are reading instructions :) . Well, in spite of being the National Bank, I am happy that they are at least going to try it. Otherwise they could have simply denied any knowledge of it as well.
