Latest FBR Releases
Apropos news item titled ‘FBR, provinces sign MoU on single sales tax return portal’ published in Daily News International on 08-12-2022 wherein it has been erroneously reported that the said MoU has been signed between Federal Board of Revenue and the provinces on Wednesday i.e. 07-12-2022 in the presence of Dr. Waqar Masood Khan, SAPM on Revenue. It is hereby clarified that presently Mr. Tariq Mahmood Pasha is Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Revenue / Minister of State (MOS) and the referred MoU was signed way back in 2021. It is quite surprising that the event of last year has been published in December 2022 by one of the esteemed English language newspapers without verifying the factual position which is against the journalistic norms of fair and factual reporting. The publication of an old event in the present date has caused unwanted confusion among the quarters’ concerned which warrants clarification to avoid spread of further misinformation and misunderstanding.
