Nawaz Sharif in an income tax return filed in 2012 declared that he received more than 684 kanals of land from his mother as a gift.

In another income tax return filed in 2011, the PM declares ownership of a Toyota Land Cruiser and a Mercedes Benz ─ among others, both gifted to him. It is unclear, however, who the gifts are from.

In a Wealth Reconciliation Statement filed by the PM in 2011, Nawaz states that he has received Rs129,836,905 from his son. It is not specified which son gave him the gift.

Although Kulsoom Nawaz, the premier's wife, did not give her family members gifts of money, she donated a sum of Rs1,000,000 to the family's trust, Sharif Trust, according to a Wealth Reconciliation Statement as on June 30, 2011.
