    Maryam’s lawyer contended before the court that the recovery of income support levy is violation of the country’s Constitution. It is up to the provincial social welfare department to work towards the welfare of the public and that the Inland Revenue department lacked authority to impose and recover a tax in the name of social protection after the passage of the 18th Constitutional Amendment, he added.

    The counsel said his client has been asked to pay income support levy on her assets worth more than Rs317 million and demanded that the impugned notice be declared illegal and unlawful.

    It is noteworthy that Leader of Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz has also challenged a notice issued to him for recovery of income support levy.

    The PML-N leader through his counsel had contended that the tax is an amount recovered by the government to meet its public welfare targets. Social welfare is a provincial subject under the 18th Amendment of the constitution, he added.
