RAWALPINDI - Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) Chairman Ahmed Waqar has asked the business community to send a formal reference to FBR for giving a tax relief to the affected traders and shopkeepers of Ghakar Plaza inferno. FBR would examine the proposal before making any decision in this regard. He said this while addressing to the members of Rawalpindi Chamber of Commerce and Industries (RCCI) here on Sunday. Besides others, RCCI President Syed Asad Mushhadi, former presidents Mian Pervaiz Aslam, Abdul Rauf Chaudhry, Najam Rehan, Sheikh Shabir and members of executive body of RCCI along with traders, businessmen and industrialists and government officials were present. While addressing, FBR Chairman Waqar said that excess of indirect taxes put whole load on common man and saved the wealthy people. The amnesty system in taxes would be abolished as it could open the door of dishonesty, he said. He said that FBR was in the process of reforms and matters regarding income tax, sales tax and excise duty have been collected in one window operation to facilitate business community. He said that measures were being taken to broaden the tax net and to bring those people in it that did not pay taxes. He said that E-filing system has produced good results so it would be continued as it saved the time of tax payee as well as taxation officials. "FBR is moving towards the complete computerisation of the entire taxation system" Waqar added. Ahmad said that tax department official would not be allowed to visit any business premises without the consent of businessman. He warned that strict action would be taken against those who were found harassing the traders' community. He told the audience that FBR provided revenue to bear almost 90 per cent of the total government expenditures. He, while opposing Tax Amnesty Scheme (TAS) for whitening black money, termed it an injustice to the real taxpayers. RCCI President Syed Asab Mushhadi, while speaking, said that the Pakistan is passing through economic crises and if the government would not realise the suggestions given by different Chambers of Commerce, the financial crunch would be jumped, which could result into more unemployment in the country.
