ISLAMABAD: Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) Chairman Shabbar Zaidi said on Sunday that the board will send notices to around 100,000 non-filers who own a house bigger than 500 yards or an above 1000cc vehicle, according to a Radio Pakistan report.
Speaking to media here at the federal capital, FBR head said the non-filers will be brought to the tax net and the date for filing taxes has been extended up to two months so that maximum people could file taxes.
Earlier on Thursday, the FBR disproved rumour pertaining to implementing a heavy withholding tax on motorcycles or rickshaws.
A day prior, speculations had surfaced that the FBR had levied a withholding tax on the registration of motorcycles and rickshaws, hiking up bikes’ registration cost by Rs3,400 to Rs20,900.
In an explanatory statement, the FBR clarified that no withholding tax would be levied on either motorcycles or rickshaws.
The body’s priority would be to give leeway to the poor people, noted the FBR member.
