Subject: Request for Resetting Password to Login on Sales Department Website

Respected Sir,

I, Henry Rodgers from Classic Crockery Store, want to submit my Sales Tax online at the website. My company has been regular in submitting sales tax to the Government. Now, I am logging after a year to pay the previous year’s sales tax that has amounted to 10000 rupees at 12% per year. But, there seems to be a problem with the login system. Even after repeated tries, I have failed to login to my account on the website of Sales Tax Department. The reason behind such an issue is that I have forgotten the exact password to login. So, it is a kind request to the Sales Tax Department to revert me with the link to reset the password.

As the last day for submission of sales tax is approaching, it is a humble request to process my email as soon as possible because I want to submit the sales tax well on time. Our crockery store has been paying sales tax without any delay and wish to do the same, this year. I shall be highly obliged to you.


Anup Jalota,
