ISLAMABAD: After declaring Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) Senator Faisal Javed a tax defaulter, the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has issued clarification in this regard.
Earlier, the tax directory of the FBR mentioned that Senator Faisal Javed paid no taxes in 2018. However, the public institution later realized its mistake and rectified it. The statement issued by the FBR read that Faisal Javed apprised it that the CNIC number and details of tax paid by him were mentioned incorrectly in the directory.
“Upon verification from the record, it has been found that CNIC and tax paid by the Senator is correctly mentioned in the Tax Directory of all taxpayers for 2018 at serial No. 499903, however Parliamentarians Directory contains incorrect details of his CNIC and tax payment.
“The correct record shows tax of Rs. 46, 127 paid by him. The Parliamentarians Directory has also been updated after correction,” read the statement.
The FBR has apologized from the senator saying that it regretted the inconvenience caused to the honourable Parliamentarian on this inadvertent mistake.
