The Problem of Agricultural Taxation in West Pakistan and an Alternative Solution: A Comment

Javed Hamid

Abstract


In the Summer 1973 issue of the Pakistan Development Review,
Mr. Mohammad Ghaffar Chaudhry wrote on "The Problem of Agricultural
Taxation in West Pakistan and an Alternative Solution". I find myself in
substantial disagreement with a lot of what Mr. Chaudhry has written.
First, I would like to clarify some misconceptions that seem to exist
regarding the finding of my paper "A Suggested Approach to Agricultural
Taxation Policy in West Pakistan", published in the Winter 1970 issue of
the Pakistan Development Review. Second, I would comment on Mr
Chaudhry's conclusions regarding the scope for additional taxation in
the agriculture sector. Finally, I would question the efficacy of the
tax policy he has suggested for the future.
