Economy In Progress

Reform The Tax Administration

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf promised in their 100 days agenda:

Appoint a bold, capable and dynamic FBR chairman immediately; launch FBR reform and share a business friendly and equitable tax policy within 100 days to revive the economy and reduce debt dependence.

You can read these promises in the 100 Days agenda document released by PTI available HERE in English and HERE in Urdu.

Below are the actions by Imran Khan and his Governance as a step towards fulfilling this promise:

Update 1:

“The federal cabinet on Tuesday approved a taskforce to oversee reforms in civil law and National Accountability Bureau laws, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said.”

The approved Task Force and appointment of Jahanzeb Khan as FBR’s chairman are major steps in reforming Pakistan’s TAX Administration¬†and hence we should change this promise status to IN PROGRESS.
