The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) on Friday formally launched the online FBR Tax Profiling System with an aim to enable 53 million people to check their bank details, properties, utility bills and travel history data, a private media house reported.

FBR Chairman Shabbar Zaidi, while addressing a press conference in Islamabad, introduced the system, using which citizens can check their tax profile after paying a fee of Rs500.

The chairman said that the data has been compiled with the help of the National Database and Registration Authority. He said that anyone — on the basis of their computerised national identity card (CNIC) and cell phone number — can request access to their information.

He said that security features have been added to the online profile system so that no one can access the personal information of another person.

Zaidi said Pakistan is entering a new era and tax assessment will now be made on the basis of available data as well as related information. He further said that Rs500 would be charged for each attempt to access one’s profile.

State Minister for Revenue Hamad Azhar also addressed the press briefing.

As per details, if a person wants to access their information, they will have to send a message to 9966 to receive a code for registration on the system.

Next, the person will have to pay a Rs500 fee and then gain access to their data.

According to the FBR, the system allows citizens to view their profile created by correlating their data from multiple data sources of assets, expenses and lifestyles available with the government.

  1. A person knows what his income and assets are and what was reported to the FBR on his tax returns. Why would that person want to check his/her personal data, and what if it is not correct, then what can be done to correct it, if at all possible. I fail to understand the value of this site, besides a possible breach of personal security, that may be hacked by others.

  2. Almost All the numbers which you mentioned in fbr side .it’s going off.I has to declare my property which I bought in few years ago in amount of 110000. D.I.khan please help me out from this condition .kindly send me proper FBR numbers.
