LAHORE: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) will start a crackdown on real estate builders, developers and housing societies for not paying their due taxes from Monday.
According to senior official of the Federal Board of Revenue, the FBR has created a squad to raid the tax defaulters and initiate investigations against them. The purpose of this campaign is to bring the people into the tax net.
The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) intends to start crackdown on more than 10,000 non-taxpayers in the coming days.
