GUJRANWALA: As many as 55 property tax defaulters paid up to Rs200,000 in the first two days of a recovery drive, for taxes unpaid for more than 10 years, on Monday and Tuesday.



The taxes were paid after Excise and Taxation Department teams sealed their properties (five-marla and smaller) which were later de-sealed. Another 165 defaulters whose properties were sealed have yet to clear taxes.

Excise and Taxation Officer Afzal Goraya told The Express Tribunethat five-marla and smaller residential properties were declared exempt from property tax 10 years ago. However, he said, a number of people had not cleared their tax liabilities for the years before the exemption.

The ETO said Rs100 million was due in property taxes on five-marla and smaller residential properties at that time. Of these, he said, Rs20 million had been cleared in 10 years.
