Tahirul Qadri tax evasion: FBR to unfold investigations soon

ISLAMABAD: Federal Board of Revenue reportedly completed investigations into Pakistan Awami Tehrik (PAT) chairman Dr Tahirul Qadri’s Rs 770 million tax evasion and decision will soon be publicized.
As per details, FBR has issued orders of a legal proceeding against PAT chairman Dr Tahirul Qadri and his organization after completing investigations of tax evasion.
FBR source told Customs Today that the decision was made only on those cases in which TUQ didn’t ask for any plea but the cases in which Dr. Qadri asked for plea were still pending as wealth statements of Tahirul Qadri did not show all the assets, transactions and accounts which have been recently traced.
In a previous notice, FBR has requested Dr Tahirul Qadri and other members and affiliates of Minhajul Quran to provide the wealth statement and give details of their assets and liabilities between June 2009 and June 2013. FBR has also asked for details of the assets and liabilities of their spouses, children and other dependents. Furthermore, the FBR notice has revealed that any assets that have been transferred and total expenditure also need to be submitted. The deadline for submission was July 15 but they did not appear before the competent authority on due date.
So now, the FBR decided to take matters in their own hands and impose taxes along with a penalty under Section 182 of the Income Tax Ordinance 2001. The details of decision made by top officials of FBR will be public in next few days.
