The board has also been making efforts to improve the tax collection process in the country by facilitating the consumers. The regulatory authority collected a total of PKR22 billion, making it the largest income tax amount historically collected as the tax filing session concluded on December 8, 2020.

These figures can be considered as double compared to last year when the board collected a total of PKR13.5 billion in income tax head.
