Federal Board of Revenue, on Friday 14th September 2018, issued a ban on income tax non-filers.
According to the official sources, the non-filers will not be able to buy four-wheel vehicles, however, the ban does not imply on purchasing motorcycle or rickshaw.
Through Finance Act, 2018, a new section 227C has been added to the Income Tax Ordinance to increase the number of filers.
According to this section, unless the person is a filer and has his/her name added in Active Taxpayers List (ATL), no booking application, registration of local or imported vehicle will be proceeded further.
Moreover, as per the FBR, all vehicles regardless of their engine capacity will fall under this ban.
Previously, when this ban was announced a few months back, a lot of people raised objection over it, and later in July 2018, the government gave non-filers a relaxation to buy or import cars under 1000cc.
