  • Govt is messing with every sector and hindering the already smith flow of property tax into the govt treasure . People are extremly disturbed and don’t even know what really tax is?, . Govt need to introduce tax culture first and introduce minimum tax for the first year to allow people to know how to pay their tax and do it happily without any hesitation . This is the only way to get maximum tax and increase its scope by increasing the number of tax payers rather then getting huge amounts from fewer people.
