ISLAMABAD: Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) Chairman Shabbar Zaidi Monday said the government was trying to broaden the tax network by imposing tax on private medical practitioners, schools and others non-tax paying sectors.
Talking to a private new channel, he said the imports had reduced by $ 1.79 billion during the first two months of ongoing fiscal year.
He said it was the policy of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government to reduce imports bills and increase exports, besides taking measures to reduce tax evasion.
To a question, the Chairman FBR said tax collection had reduced due to decrease in imports. He said the government would hopefully achieve the tax target set for fiscal year 2019-20.
To another question, Shabbar Zaidi said there was no likelihood of any mini-budget.
