Online services for Trade License Collection & Holding Tax Submission have been inaugurated by the Mayor of Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Syed Khokan,at the South Town Hall yesterday. These services aim to make such governmental processingeasier &faster for the general public, said the Mayor. Now, any businessman can apply for their trade license online, and house-owner will not have visit the town-hall anymore for their tax submission. All these can be done over the internet & all sorts of payment channels are available for making transactions. Mayor also claimed that, DSCC is not increasing the holding tax at all. Instead, they are only balancing it. He mentions that, about 29 years agorenters used to collect only 5 thousand taka from their tenants. In that place,they are collecting 2 lacs. But, they had been paying tax based on that, 5 thousand taka margin for decades. Now,DSCC could charge them withthe decades’ long evaded taxes as due payment, by the law. But, DSCC will not be doing so, for their overall welfare, he added.
