Punjab Excise and Taxation Department sent a notice on Thursday to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, asking him to pay luxury tax on his Zaman Park residence in Lahore.

The notice said, “The Government of Punjab has levied Luxury House Tax on houses with land areas of two kanals.”

He was asked to clear arrears under luxury tax amounting to Rs3.6 million.


The notice was addressed to his late mother Shaukat Khanum.

Furthermore, the department has warned that if the dues are not cleared within a week, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) will be approached in this regard.

The notice has been sent as the date for Punjab elections, May 14, looms nearer.
