Is there a source which states the yearly wage? PM pays a little of £1k in taxes same with Bilawal. Zardari pays £13k in taxes ..

Zardari paid less than $2000 in taxes? This is shocking. I wonder what the tax rules in Pakistan are. I used to pay more than that as a college student. There’s either something wrong with the tax laws in Pakistan or the FBR is a criminal organization.

Don’t leave the country, change the country.

I wish someone posts the houses, cars and businesses of these politicians and the amount of tax they paid. It’s an insult to people’s intelligence that a McDonald’s worker pays more in tax each year in America than Pakistan’s elite. No wonder the country is always in economic ruin. The FBR should be disbanded.

After a few incidents in Pakistan my family sold all assets in Pakistan and moved the funds to the US to invest. We don’t have time to deal with land mafias and nonsense like that. My family back home is pretty rich and same as in the states — the tax on my house alone is 25K per year and add another 50K on income after maximizing deductions; and this doesn’t take into consideration the remaining rental properties and few gas stations we own that are taxed.

Pakistan system is screwed up.

If PM Imran Khan pays taxes amounting to only $1,314 ($1,700) when his declared assets are valued over Rs 3.8 billion as of June 2018, then he's not really setting a good example.

A question to PTI supporters.

Any particular reason why the PTI website has stopprd uploading PM Imran Khan's declared assets since he became Prime Minister?
Tax is paid on the INCOME generated from assets, not the asset itself. If you sell an asset, you pay tax on the proceeds/profit. Similarly, when you purchases an asset, you pay taxes on that transaction.

Just owning a assets, doesn't mean you pay taxes. Now the big question, how did Zardari & Shehbaz generate income to pay that high amount in taxes? 2.2million & 9.7million in taxes, would mean their income that resulted in that would easily be over 10million & 30million.

Its pretty straight forward they dont own any assets that produce income. Those are earned by bogus people whose accounts are used by them

Even bilawal birthday money comes from these account

An open & shut case but not in pakistan where majority thinks corruption is okay or that corruption is acceptable because every one does it
