I am suffering from sales tax department mumbai. some business man collected the sales tax amount from other me, but did not deposited the collected tax amount to sales tax department, and also didn't give sale-purchase detail to department. and declare themselves as hawala. now sales tax authority are forcing me to accept liability of hawala dealers and pay the payment, which i already pay to declare hawala dealers.
example : "A" sold to "B" and submitted his statement to department.
"B" sold to "C" but did not made tax payment to sales tax department and also did not give his J1, J2.
"C" purchase from "B" and "C" made bill payment with tax to "B" and "C" submit his J1, J2 to department.
On what ground "C" is liable to pay to department, as he already pay the tax amount.
Kindly help, i am in great trouble.
