ISLAMABAD - Perturbed over the leakage of tax returns of parliamentarians to the media, Public Accounts Committee on Wednesday ruled that it was not possible without involvement of insiders and asked the authorities concerned to take notice of it.“The job has been done by the insiders, which is indeed a crime and cannot be ignored. It is the duty of public servants to ensure safety and security of public record,” PAC Chairman Nadeem Afzal Chan remarked during a PAC meeting chaired by its chairman Nadeem Afzal Chan. The chairman and members of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) expressed their anger over the leakage of the sensitive documents to the national media and asked FBR Chairman Ali Arshad Hakim to punish all those involved in this scandal. “You need to conduct an investigation to trace the officials responsible for this scam and punish them,” Chan asked the FBR chairman. A member of the committee, Raza Hiraj, was of the opinion that parliamentarians had forwarded their tax returns to the FBR and most probably the leakage of the information might take place from there.In a bid to secure their position, the FBR chairman told the PAC that an interdepartmental inquiry had been initiated to detect the officials who leaked the information of the tax returns submitted by the parliamentarians. The PAC also directed the FBR chairman to issue notices to tax evaders of all the sectors and submit a comprehensive report to the committee. Hakim told the NA body that only 0.3 percent people were taxpayers. He revealed that the highest tax paid by an individual was Rs 460 million last year.According to the FBR chairman, officials have identified three million people and are planning to bring them into tax net next year. “The FBR has evolved future strategy according to which the CNICs of the tax evaders would be blocked after which they would not be able to do bank transactions,” Hakim said and added cases regarding Rs 200 billion tax payments were in the courts.
