Need clear tax laws to prevent black money creation:Niti chief 4.12.2016 Deccan Herald - Business
Terming taxation laws in the country as "ill-defined", Niti Aayog vice-chairman Arvind Panagariya today called for removing ambiguities in them so as to do away with "discretion of the tax officer". He also said that demonetisation of high value currency is just one step to combat black money, and more needs to be done. "Tax reform is really important to curb black money," he said at a panel discussion here. "More simplification means reduction and presumably elimination of the many exemptions under the existing laws. Also, we need to spell out many of these rules and laws explicitly. In our case the tax laws are often ill-defined. That of course leads to scope for discretions," he added. He said tax reforms like reduction in stamp duty are necessary to stop generation of black money in the system and that this should be done at the earliest following the demonetisation of high value banknotes. "Demonetisation is one of the steps to stop creation of black money but a lot more needs to be done," said the ...
