Dubai will provide details of properties with Pakistani owners: Shabbar
Earlier, no tax has been imposed on edible items including flour and pulses, said FBR Chairman Syed Shabbar Zaidi. Speaking at a news conference in the federal capital, he said the basic food items had not been taxed in this budget, strongly rejecting the rumors being spread in the public. Zaidi said their target was to broaden the tax net, however, the bureau would not take any decision that hurts the country’s industry or trade. The chairman regretted that the ratio of those paying sales tax is very low, saying Computerized National Identity Card (CNIC) is required only for the people registered under sales tax, but some elements are misusing this facility to other benefits.
