No FBR access to taxpayers’ bank accounts

KARACHI: The government has guaranteed the business community that FBR will not have access to the bank accounts of regular taxpayers, an official has said.

Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) President Zubair Ahmed Malik has confirmed that the prime minister had earlier agreed to give relaxation of bank account access by FBR in the cases of regular taxpayers. “Otherwise, the non-taxpayers will be given opportunity to file their tax returns before accessing their accounts,” he added.

Various businessmen have also shown satisfaction over PM’s assurance that FBR will not have access to the bank accounts of businessmen, who paid their taxes regularly regarding it as a promising step.
