The acting Mayor of Kabul, Abdul Ahad Wahid, said on Saturday that companies, NGOs, ministries and other public institutions owed up to AFN 2.225bn in taxes to the Kabul municipality over the past decade.

“The municipality tried different ways to collect the unpaid taxes, but it failed,” said Wahid.

He added that this matter had been shared with the Presidential Palace and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and would be taken up with the Cabinet.

According to Wahid, another 160mn AFN are yet to be collected from the land occupants in Sherpur locality of Kabul. He urged the government to take urgent actions in this regard.
