Karachi, February 27, 2014 (PPI-OT): Mr. Zakaria Usman, President FPCCI appreciated the government for granting tax incentive package under which privileges has been awarded to the top tax payers of the country. He stated that no doubt such incentives and appreciations from the plateform of the government is an honour for them.
He expressed his apprehension on publicizing the name of the top tax payers and said that instead of getting privilege they have been put into trouble in view of the current deteriorated law and order situation in Pakistan especially in Karachi where the kidnapping, extortions and decoities are common. The FBR has put them in danger to their life and business as well by publishing the list of top tax payers.
The President FPCCI said that the people who are in the list are lodging complaints in FPCCI and requesting us to urge FBR to refrain to publicize the list. The President FPCCI further stated that by issuing such lists the tax net of FBR may be reduced rather than enhanced.
In this situation the top tax payers for the sack of their life and business would prefer to be smallest one. The President FPCCI said that FBR may contact FPCCI to meet with those who lodged their complaints in FPCCI.
