    army to collect taxes

    ISLAMABAD, July 6: The Central Board of Revenue has communicated to the army that their assistance would be required to ensure tax compliance even after the conduct of survey for documentation of economy.

    Briefing corps commanders at their 72nd conference on Thursday, CBR chairman Riaz Hussain Naqvi explained that Rs100 billion additional revenue projected from the ongoing survey would be made possible only by a follow-up action for tax compliance. The Chief of General Staff, Lt-Gen Mohammad Aziz Khan, presided over the conference.

    The tax compliance, he said, would only be ensured if the assistance of army continued to maintain pressure on taxpayers for at least three years. The ongoing protest from traders, especially the retail sector, could have evolved into an eruption if the army had not been directly involved in the conduct of the survey, he pointed out.
