    The news is silent about tax refunds. Only net collection has been mentioned. As per informal informations there seems delay in granting of refunds becasue many tax payers have not received refunds and there seems delays in processing of returns and granting of refunds.

    Meger collection of Wealth Tax Rs 309 crore inspite of heavy price increase in gold and silver suggest need to abolish wealth tax and to concentrate on meaningfull levies of tax.
    Alternatively basic exemption be raised to Rs. one crore and rate of wealth tax above wealth of Rs. one crore may be increased to 3 – 5 % to make levy meaningful. The superrich taxpayers can pay wealth tax at higher rate as a wealth holding, wealth carrying and wealth appreciation cost. Such WT may be allowed as cost of improvement in case of sale of such properties which had been subject to levy of welath tax during five previous years before transfer of the property.
