PM Sir, be fair in tax for MSMEs


The toughest time for MSMEs is the Jan to March quarter where they need all their resources to conduct business efficiently. This coincides with the most intense recovery pressures from various tax departments which hampers the MSMEs cashflows and ability to conduct business. Even in the case of bonafide cases where there are interpretation issues, the tax department demands 20% of the disputed amount which causes difficulty to the taxpayer. Even if the taxpayer does not have the ability to make the payment, coercive measures are used to recover the money. While on the other hand when it comes to refund, the IT authorities do not show any urgency and refunds are delayed, very often on purpose to meet their collection targets. The whole system is rigged in such a way that it is squarely against the small taxpayer who suffers the most. Hence we request the PM and FM to not kill the goose that lays the eggs and destroy the MSME that provides jobs and taxes.
