Sindh govt to mull over collection of two taxes through K-Electric bills
The Sindh government on Wednesday unveiled its plan to collect two taxes on behalf of the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) — fire tax and conservancy tax — from the citizens of Karachi through the monthly K-Electric bill.
The proposal was discussed in a meeting comprising officials of the power utility and municipal departments, chaired by Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah.
According to a statement from the CM House, the meeting was convened to discuss the tax collection of the KMC and district municipal corporations through KE monthly bills.
The provincial chief executive said the rationale behind the move was to financially strengthen local government institutions. “We want to improve local tax collection,” he added.
