ISLAMABAD: A day after announcing receipt of all property related data in London, the Federal Board of Revenue claimed on Tuesday that it has received particulars of Pakistani nationals who have undeclared properties in Dubai.
A senior official of the FBR said the data includes quantum of rental income earned from these properties. The data was received from Dubai tax authorities, the tax official said.
Separately the FBR is also intensifying its awareness campaign around the amnesty scheme. Directions have been issued to top tax officials based in Karachi to play a proactive role in creating awareness about the benefits of tax amnesty scheme among the business community in the metropolis, enabling them to declare their undeclared assets and get immunity on them for future.
Similar instructions were issued to top tax officials based in Lahore, Faisalabad, Multan, Gujranwala and Sialkot to mobilize people to avail the scheme.
An official statement issued on Tuesday said that a series of meetings in major cities are being scheduled to urge people to avail the scheme.
