Subject: Increase in the tax rate for the present financial year
Dear Tax payer,
We are writing from the town development authority of your state. For the present financial year we are planning to undertake some community development activities such as new parks, senior citizen community centers, health centers etc. As a result of these we are forced to levy an additional tax of 2% on the existing tax rate on the net income of the tax assesses.
We hereby make an honest appeal to all the tax payers that this additional tax being collected will be spent judiciously for the welfare and development of your locality. It is therefore requested that you make necessary arrangements for remitting this added tax for the present financial year before the end of this quarter without fail. Your timely payment will help us to initiate the developmental projects at the earliest without any delay and will help us to serve you better.
The details of the various developmental projects including their specifications and costs and budget is enclosed for your information. You can feel free to contact us for any further information that you wish to know about these projects.
