It's obvious that tax collection on salaries increased as any increment given by employers to cover inflation was taken away by FBR in taxes! What was FBR's effort in this? Same goes for electricity as price per unit increased they gained 106.7% in WHT collection... Tell us how many tax evaders you caught? How much was the recovery contribution % from that action? Non-Filers enjoy here as always!
