Sources added that FBR is awaiting the directions of Finance minister Ishaq Dar as when he directs, the department will launch the parliamentarian tax directory.
The FBR in January 2022 had launched the Parliamentarian tax directory of 2019 and the department has yet to public details of parliamentarians for 2020, 2021, and 2022.
