In the past year, the FBR has unearthed a number of scams related to the refund of taxes for importers. Although this shows excellent progress by FBR to detect these scams, these incidents also show the weaknesses in the system of refunds. Therefore, I think the FBR should stop this process of getting refunds and start a completely new process from this year. This will stop these scams in the future while the FBR investigates the scams already identified.
