Pakistan is one of the countries in the world with the lowest tax-to-GDP ratios. The tax-to GDP ratio tells about country development in a year. With higher Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of a country, more the revenue of a country will be. Therefore, the government will try to increase the tax base. This is what the government of Pakistan is trying to do.

According to a statistic from the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) Pakistan, only 1% of the total population are active taxpayers. It’s embarrassing for a country of 220 million population. However, the Government of Pakistan is trying to address this area. With changes being made in the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), we can expect an increase in the percentage of the active taxpayers.

Categorization of Citizens for Tax

Without boring you more with tax and GDP information, we will get straight to the point which is how to become a filer. The Government of Pakistan categorize its citizen in two groups, one is filer and other is non-filer. A filer is a person that is on the FBR active taxpayer list. On the other hand, non-filer is a person who is not on an active taxpayer list.

What is an active taxpayer list? FBR manage a detailed list of the taxpayer which is called Active Taxpayer List (ATL). The list is updated on the first day of every week. You can download the list to check whether you are on it or not. However, we will discuss how to check ATL status later in the article. But first, we will discuss the perks of being a tax filer.

Perks of being a Tax Filer

The Government of Pakistan gives many incentives to tax filers so that more people get encouraged to become a tax filer.

  • The tax filers have to pay less vehicle token tax as compared to non-filers. For instance, if the vehicle token tax for non-filer is 20,000 then for filer it will be 10,000.
  • If you are a filer then you have to pay 0.3% withholding tax on every transaction of more than 50,000. In contrast, the non-filers have to pay 0.4% withholding tax.
  • When a tax filer buys an immovable property then he or she has to pay 50% less tax as compared to non-filers.

These are some of the perks which tax filers get from the Federal Government. Now the question is how much income in a year is taxable? There are different tax slabs created by FBR. If your income is more than 6 lacs per year then you have to pay the income tax. If it is less than 6 lacs per year then you are not liable to pay income tax. However, you have to file a return to declare your income without paying any taxes.
