FBR to target non-filers who own 1,000cc cars now

The condition of becoming a tax filer has also been declared mandatory for the owners of houses of 500sq.yds and above. 

FBR (Federal Board of Revenue) is now moving to take action against non-filers who own 1,000cc cars or above as filing deadline passes this month. FBR sources have confirmed that the authority is crafting a list of owners of 1,000cc cars and above.

To avoid action, thousands of old car owners have become filers. However, FBR also expects a strong resistance from those who have not filed their tax returns yet. Now that the FBR has also taken banks on board, it has become much more convenient for the authority to identify owners of cars and houses.

The condition of becoming a tax filer has also been declared mandatory for the owners of houses of 500sq.yds and above.

“FBR reiterates that every person owning a car above 1,000cc and a house measuring 500 sq.yds or above is mandatorily required to file a return of income irrespective of having any taxable income during the year,” Shabbar Zaidi recently said in a statement.

“Penal actions will be taken against delinquents. Avail extension,” he added.

FBR has further added that the “individuals and associations of persons who were required to file their income tax returns for the tax year 2019 first by Sept 30 and then by an extended deadline of Nov 30 but failed to do so will now be able to file their income tax returns by Dec 16.”
