Benefits of tax filer in Pakistan
In Pakistan, many are either salaried employees or are running their businesses, but all people don’t pay taxes. It is compulsory for all people who own their businesses to pay the tax, but due to a lack of awareness, they need to pay more attention.
They must be aware of the benefits of being a taxpayer in Pakistan. If they pay the tax, it will become the biggest source of income for the country’s economy.
Every citizen must pay their tax on time. For this purpose, the Federal Board of Revenue has made it compulsory to pay the tax, and it tries to bring more and more people in front to pay the tax and sends them letters to get themselves registered in the National Tax Number to become Active Taxpayers.
When an employee is added to the list of active payers, he can get the benefits of paying lower taxes than nonfliers.
