The Federal Board of Revenue received several complaints that some employees of Inland Revenue involved in private tax practice /consultancy. Those employees found in the private tax practice/consultancy file tax returns without wealth statements & e-filing disciplinary action in case anyone found indulged in private legal / tax consultancy.

The Federal Board of Revenue has decided to take strict action against any official who found involved in such practice, which shall also entail initiation of disciplinary proceedings under the Government Servants (Efficiency & Discipline) Rules, 1973,”
The FBR warned all its officials, including Inland Revenue and Pakistan Customs against indulging into any such private, tax/ legal consultancy of any sort in the future.
