FBR Tax Collection Up 15% in First Five Months of FY23

The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has exceeded both the five-month (July-Nov) target for the current fiscal year (FY23) as well as the monthly target for November despite import compression and zero rating on petroleum products.

Provisional gross revenue collection stood at Rs. 2,823 billion for the first five months of FY23 compared to Rs. 2,454 billion collected during the corresponding period of the previous fiscal year. The collection of direct tax registered maximum growth of 43 percent during the period.

Only in the area of Income Tax arrears, FBR collected Rs. 24.17 billion during the five-month period as against Rs. 11.69 billion collected last year.
