FBR launches drive to ensure filing of IT returns in non-salary cases
Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has decided to launch a countrywide campaign to ensure filing of Income Tax returns in non-salary cases, says an official press statement issued here.
The decision made in the wake of a high priority being attached to the enforcement of Income Tax returns in the non-salary cases, has been conveyed to director generals of all Regional Tax Offices (RTOs) which have been directed to constitute dedicated team of officers to spearhead the campaign for persuading the non-filers to file Income Tax returns for the Tax Year
2008. Permission letters to the teams will be issued by the concerned commissioners holding charge of the broadening of tax base. The commissioners will also be responsible for the supervision and monitoring of the campaign.
The FBR has also directed the RTOs to assign the teams running the campaign specific geographical areas of their operation within the respective RTOs.
The officials have also been advised to ensure transparency and commitment during the campaign while those showing excellent results have been promised rewards under the Unified Reward Rules. The results of the campaign will be intimated by the RTOs to the Board on the last working day of every week.
