The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has decided to bring unregistered doctors into the tax net in a bid to widen the tax base of the country.
The board has written a letter to the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC), seeking details of its members within 10 days. The board has also mentioned that it’s mandatory for all the doctors registered with the PMDC to file their tax returns.
According to the FBR, most of the council’s members have not filed their tax returns.
The board has been working to point out the non-filers and making efforts to bring them into the tax net. It has been asked by Prime Minister Imran Khan to adopt a reformed system for tax collection.
The premier has said time and time again that tax defaulters are the enemies of the nation and should be exposed.
