Mahi plays highest taxpayer knock
Former Team India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was conspicuous by his absence when the income tax department called out his name on Friday to felicitate him as the highest individual taxpayer in the state.
The rankings were announced in three categories — individual, corporate and partnership firm — during a departmental seminar organised at a city hotel. Besides Dhoni, Nand Kishore Chaudhary and Uday Shankar Prasad were declared the second- and third-highest individual taxpayers.
In the corporate category, Ranchi-headquartered Central Coalfields won the crown of the highest taxpaying company followed by two Jamshedpur based companies, Timken India and Jamipol. Big Shop, Kashyap Memorial Eye Hospital and Brothers Academy (all from Ranchi) were declared the three highest taxpaying partnership firms.
The amount of income tax paid by the individuals and firms felicitated was not declared for reasons of privacy.
The daylong seminar discussed topics such as assessment of cases involving shared premium and unsecured loan from shell companies; aspects of search and seizure; daan patra (gift deed)/joint development agreement; and accurate and flawless quality assessment.
