The department has created teams to this end, and they will begin working soon. The study is expected to result in a 35 to 40% increase in revenue, according to reports. This study will also include areas near the province’s major roads and motorways.
The Department of Excise and Taxation, according to sources, undertakes a survey every five years to analyse land utilisation and create tax collection methods. The research, on the other hand, will begin a year later than expected. Because of the country’s pandemic condition, the poll is being conducted this year rather than in 2020. It’s worth noting that the most recent poll took place in 2015.
