Majority of Pakistani tax last payers not tracable
Islamabad: Around 600,000 people in Pakistan did not pay their taxes in the past one year, which highlights the "incompetence and mismanagement" of the country's top tax machinery, a daily said on Sunday.

The Federal Bureau of Revenue (FBR) claims 1.44 million people regularly file tax returns, but there are only 856,987 taxpayers who can be traced to their homes or workplaces.

"Does this mean that the missing numbers, 583,013 are imaginary tax payers," the daily asked.

This discrepancy emerged from the data of the National Database and Registration Authority when it was compared with figures compiled by the Pakistan Revenue Automation, a subsidiary of the FBR.

It was also revealed that among the valid 856,987 tax payers, 51,522 did not pay any taxes last year. Pakistan, with a population of 180 million, collected INR 80 billion as taxes in 2011.

According to official figures, each taxpayer pays INR 13,673 as income tax every year. Only 0.6 percent of the population pays taxes in Pakistan, as against 4.7 percent in India, 58 percent in France and 80 percent in Canada.
