    Whats wrong with that.

    It is a criminal offence in all countries for failing to pay taxes or falsely declaring income in order to pay lesser tax.

    Those who dont pay their share of the tax should be thrown behind bar and their property seized as proceeds of crime.

    Its the best thing.

    I work in the industry and our systems are linked up with Tax office and we instantly get alerts when claims are above the industry average. Tax office here is data mining and cross referencing all claims to catch tax cheats.

    i think govt should construct new jails as there will be little space available in existing jails because much public will be arrested in coming days.
    If someone has made property by earning outside Pakistan govt has no right to charge tax on this as he has not used govt facilities to earn money

    Every one knows this is threat for likes of nawaz sharif, zardari etc. and their cronies (cronies of imran khan also included like jahangeer tareen etc.) who are hiding their wealth both inside and outside of Pakistan. This doesn't apply to 99% of Pakistanis so they don't need to worry, it is the 1% (2.2 million people out of 220 million total) privileged criminal class who are sitting on the wealth that is equal to the combined wealth of the remaining 99% population of Pakistan.

    and what about the damn salaried class who are not counted among the filers, but have the taxes deducted automatically from their pay.
    The Government should automatically include them in the list of filers. Paying up more than due tax, and still not being counted among filers, that sucks.

    That is a false assertion. Can you back up with hard evidence.

    Overseas Pakistani's are not required to be filers and can purchase property in Pakistan. Though those who earn income overseas but are residence for tax purposes are required to pay tax, this is the case in all countries.

    Many people who are scared are those who have laundered money or evaded tax and bought properties overseas. they should be held accountable to that.

    There are two set of people.

    1. Overseas Pakistanis who spend full year overseas, work overseas and pay their taxes overseas.

    they are not required to pay taxes.

    2. Pakistani's who are Pakistani residence for tax purpose, live in Pakistan but have also earned income from abroad, from projects, rental property, investment etc. As they are residence for Tax purpose therefore they are required to Pay tax in Pakistan on both local source and foreign source income.l

    this is the case world over.
