Kingfisher fails to meet Jan 6 service tax payment deadline

Kingfisher Airlines on Friday failed to pay its service tax dues for December, which could lead to freezing of its bank accounts once again, a senior Finance Ministry official said.



“Kingfisher Airlines paid Rs 10 crore (April-November) arrears. We are still awaiting payment of the December dues,” the official told PTI.



Earlier this week, the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) had asked Kingfisher to pay service tax for December by January 6 or face action, including freezing of its bank accounts, attachment of properties and imposition of additional penalties.



Last month, the CBEC had frozen 10 accounts of Kingfisher for allegedly defaulting on payment of service tax it collected from passengers. The accounts were de-frozen within a week after it made part-payment of the dues.
