Kerala Tax Practitioners’ Association has called for a state-level strike on Wednesday raising various demands. As part of the strike, the association will picket the commercial tax office in the city.
They demanded that a tax practitioners’ council should be formed to control the tax practitioners here.
They also urged that identity cards should be issued to tax practitioners.
“There are some unauthorised tax practitioners here. Mistakes committed by them badly affect authorised practitioners. So it’s essential to have an accreditation council to control the activity of tax practitioners,” said S Vijayan Asari, state president of Kerala Tax Practitioners’ Association.
He said that measures should be taken to stop unauthorised practices in the field. Other demands by the association include imposition of VAT auditing, special login ID in commercial tax website and membership in VAT consultative committee.
