This is with reference to the quarter-page advertisements being repeatedly placed in newspapers by the FBR ordering “Display of NTN is mandatory at a very prominent place at their businesses premises under Rule 83 of IT Rules”.
Business premises, doctors’ waiting rooms, lawyers, chambers etc are visited by all spectrums of society including criminals, terrorists, and extortionists.
Does the FBR want to help them access our National Tax Number so they can get hold of our income declaration, bank statements, and bank accounts?
Doctors and businessmen are being abducted for ransom while extortion notes are being passed around.
Why is the FBR penalising honest, hardworking tax payers by exposing them to such dangers? Whose side is the FBR on?
