The authority of the federal government to tax immovable property has been challenged in the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday.
According to the 24News HD TV channel, the court issued a notice to the federal government, the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), and other parties to the response.
The court also issued a 27A notice to the Attorney General for Pakistan for assistance to the LHC in this petition.
Justice Shams Mehmood Mirza heard the applications of Mohammad Usman Khalid and others on Monday and also ordered the consolidation of all the applications in this regard.
Muhammad Mohsin Virk Advocate and other lawyers appeared on behalf of the petitioners and took a stand that after the 18th Amendment of the Constitution of Pakistan, the federal government does not have the authority to tax immovable property.
The lawyers of the petitioners took a stand that it is the authority of the provincial government to fix a tax on immovable property.
It was requested the court annul the initiative of the federal government to impose a tax on immovable property and order the federal government to stop tax on the immovable property till the final decision of the case.
