VIJAYAWADA: The Taxpayers Association has filed a petition with the PA High Court against the new capital value-based property tax system compared to the current annual rental value system.

Association chairman Sambi Reddy and Secretary Anjaneyulu, as well as PA Urban Citizens Forum chairman Babu Rao, lamented the “ruthless” way in which the state government places an additional burden on the population. in the midst of the Corona crisis. “Political parties and organizations had organized demonstrations but to no avail, and that is why we have filed a petition with the HC to seek justice,” they said Thursday at a press conference.

They said the Taxpayers Association filed the lawsuit on May 14 through state bar council member Sunkara Rajendraprasad and another lawyer Narra Srinivas. The value of capital only becomes real when it is sold, they said.

“Additionally, it is not possible for everyone to come to the company office and submit objections while the Covid rules are in effect.”

Executives said that while there were 2,17,141 property assessments and 13,229 vacant property assessments in the city of Vijayawada, only 3,085 objections were received due to the Covid lockdown. “The imposition of a 0.13% tax on residential buildings and the imposition of a 0.5% tax on vacant land with no income was illegal,” they said.
