FBR want to increase the number of tax payers in Pakistan. Pakistan has one of the lowest number of tax payers compared to its population. Pakistan has one of the lowest number of tax payers with the help of the FBR, therefore if FBR want to show real seriousness in tax collection, they should ensure that every Government employee and Government owned organization, including the FBR, pays 100% tax.

Once FBR achieves this target of 100% tax collection from Government employees and organization, only than will the people of Pakistan take FBR seriously and consider becoming a regular tax payer. But if the new chairman of FBR thinks that the people of Pakistan will become tax payers while observing Government employees and Ministers and politicians not paying any taxes or reading in the news that Government organization have not paid taxes for many years, than he is sadly mistaken.
