Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf's (PTI) Jehangir Tareen is the country's top tax-paying parliamentarian with Rs53.67 million filed in tax returns over the past year, according to the Federal Board of Revenue's (FBR) fourth Parliamentarians' Tax Directory 2016.

The report, which details the amount of taxes paid by 1,010 members of parliament over the previous fiscal year, shows that politicians paid a total of Rs3.36 trillion in taxes last year.

Baloch National Party-Awami's Jehanzeb Jamaluddin filed just Rs4,000 in returns — the least amount of tax paid by a parliamentarian.

The Balochistan Assembly was the only one where all members filed their taxes with the FBR in 2016. A total of 18 parliamentarians did not file their tax returns last year.
