Pakistan Observer - - ECONOMY WATCH -

ISLAMABAD—The Fed­eral Board of Rev­enue (FBR) has in­tro­duced a re­ward scheme for whis­tle-blow­ers on tax evaders.

The board has an­nounced a re­ward scheme urg­ing peo­ple to re­port tax eva­sion and blow whis­tle on cor­rupt of­fi­cials.

Re­port­ing eva­sion of tax worth Rs 5 lac would get the per­son 25 per­cent of the amount.

Re­port­ing tax eva­sion of over Rs 5 lac to Rs 10 would get the whistle­blower ten per­cent of the amount and Rs 1 lac from the board.

Fed­eral Board of Rev­enue has in­tro­duced a link at its web­site by tag ‘whis­tle-blower’ for the lo­cals. The depart­ment has vowed to take stern ac­tion against those who are found guilty of em­bez­zle­ment.—DNA
