In order to boost revenue and widen the tax base to include more people, the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has decided to launch a fleet of 155 mobile tax facilitation centers across the nation, according to a social media post on the FBR’s official Facebook page.
PAKISTANI TAXPAYERS TO PAY TAX THROUGH DEBIT AND CREDIT CARDS
Through mobile tax facilitation stations, the program would introduce technologically enabled outreach initiatives under PRR (Pakistan Raises Revenue Programme), bringing frequently used taxation services closer to the taxpayers’ homes.
The program will be carried out in line with government priorities and directives, including the Federal Cabinet’s circular from July 7, 2022, which outlined the austerity measures for FY 2022–2023 and authorized the purchase of such utility vehicles. After the Central Development Working Party (CDWP) and the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) have approved the revised PC-1, this initiative will be implemented in phases.
