The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) is going to launch a door-to-door campaign to expose tax evaders, a ministry of finance report has revealed.
The report states that a nationwide door-to-door campaign is on the cards that will not only identify the tax evaders but will also help improving tax collection.
“In order to broaden the tax base, FBR is set to launch a nationwide campaign, which includes a door-to-door survey for collection of information to identify potential tax evaders,” it said.
The report states that the move will further help increase the tax net – which is a key in reviving the overall economic structure of the country.
The incumbent government is striving to restructure FBR to improve the tax base and its collection. The government has taken various steps in this regard including, the introduction of tax reforms which further ease out the taxpaying process.
The government has also introduced the digitalized tax collection process through the introduction of a One-Link facility.
The PTI government is focusing on the improvement of the tax payment system, particularly from the perspective of revenue collection and to facilitate the taxpayers and minimize the incidence of leakages.
