FBR restricts tax officials from entering taxpayers premises for search &  audit

ISLAMABAD: Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has barred officers of Inland Revenue from entering premises of taxpayers for search and audit purposes.

The FBR issued a notification on Monday and restricted IR officers for invoking Section 175(1) of Income Tax Ordinance, 2001.

The FBR received numerous complaints of taxpayers that tax officials were abusing powers available under this section.

The FBR said that in exceptional cases the section may be invoked but with the prior permission of the chief commissioner of Inland Revenue.
