FBR has Sent Tax Notice of Rs. 8.1 Crore to a Tire Puncturer :
A tyre repairman in Punjab named Fazal Shah was left stunned after receiving a notice from the tax authorities requesting payment of Rs. 8 crore and Rs. 13 lac in returns. Shah and his family were taken aback by the notice, as he claimed to have never seen Rs. 80 million in real life and that his health had deteriorated as a result of the shock.
Upon receiving the notice from the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), Shah apparently lost consciousness and had to be taken to the hospital for treatment. In an interview with a local news station, Shah described his situation, stating that he had established the tyre puncture store only a year ago and that he did not own any luxuries, such as a car or bungalow. He also claimed that he barely makes Rs. 700- Rs. 800 per day and struggles to make ends meet during a recession.
Shah even admitted that he was unable to afford his daughter’s private treatment after she tragically sustained major burns. The FBR authorities have stated that Shah submitted his tax returns from 2016 to 2022 and are currently investigating the situation as the story has gained coverage in various local media outlets. The FBR notification listed Shah as a 13-year tax defaulter.
