Haroon urges traders to avail benefits of new tax scheme


MULTAN, Feb 13 (APP): Special Assistant to Prime Minister  on Revenue Haroon Akhtar Khan on Saturday urged non-tax filers to  avail an opportunity under the tax amnesty scheme which would surely  benefit them. Addressing a seminar arranged jointly by traders  and the FBR here, he said nearly one million people out of  180 million in the country were paying taxes which was very  low. He added that 4.5 percent people in India used to pay  taxes and if Pakistanis paid at the same percentage, then there  would be nine million tax payers in our country.
