ISLAMABAD: Advisor to Prime Minister on Finance, Revenue, and Economic Affairs, Miftah Ismail has said the data of tax evaders would be provided to the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), within thirty days.
The tax evaders would be identified and the data would be provided to FBR to broaden the tax network in the country, he said while talking to a private news channel.
The government had announced the amnesty scheme and reduced the tax rate to facilitate the people. “We will identify the people through National Database Registration Authority (NADRA), and the list would be provided to the department concerned before holding the next elections,” he said.
To a question, he said it was strange that Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chief who had been beneficiary of an amnesty scheme, was opposing this scheme announced by the present government.
To another question, he said about 1,200,000 people were paying taxes and that the number would increase in days to come.
