Do I come under the Tax Net?
Taxes are something that the general population in Pakistan hardly understand, largely because it is one of the least discussed topics in social circles. However, what Pakistanis need to understand is that taxes are the single most important change maker in any economy.
You must have often heard how government needs to bring more people into the ‘tax net’, but what does it really mean? Most people have income taxes deducted at source, so are they really in the tax net? If you don’t know the answer to that, you are among the majority of the Pakistani population.
The simple answer to this question is that tax deduction at source does not make an individual a tax filer until he files his returns. This is why, individuals who are paying income tax at source still pay higher taxes at banking transactions as well as sale and purchase of properties and vehicles just because they aren’t registered with the economy and are treated as non-filers.
There are various benefits of becoming a tax filer in Pakistan and Befiler has made the entire process quite hassle-free.
