We refer to the recent changes made in the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001 (through the Finance Act, 2014 (the Act), applicable with effect from July 1, 2014. Through the Act, a concept of filer and non-filer has been introduced in order to promote tax culture, discourage non-compliance with tax laws and address the concerns of citizens who pay due taxes regarding them having higher cost of business than tax evaders.
‘Filer’ as defined in the Ordinance means a taxpayer whose name appears in the active taxpayers’ list issued by the Federal Board of Revenue from time to time or is a holder of a taxpayers’ card. A ‘Non-Filer’ is a person who is not a filer.
A list of Active Taxpayers is available on the FBR’s website and can be accessed through following link:
www.fbr.gov.pk Home > e-Services > Active Taxpayer List (Income Tax)
Through this letter we would apprise you the separate rates of tax withholding on cash withdrawal and return on accounts, now prescribed for ‘filer’ and non-filer’.
