While addressing the participants present during the first computerized draw of POS Prize Scheme held at FBR (HQs) in the presence of national mainstream media Recently, 2022, Chairman FBR Dr. Muhammad Ashfaq Ahmed had appealed the Pakistani citizens to launch a national movement for the promotion of a culture of tax compliance in the country.

He had suggested a three pronged strategy to ensure that Sales Tax collected from customers at the point of sale was actually being deposited in the state exchequer. He had proposed that people should shop only from those Tier-1 retail outlets which were integrated with FBR POS System, demand computerized invoice (Pakki Receipt), and finally verify the same through FBR Tax Asaan App.

It is so very reassuring to witness that citizens have started responding to his call and are demanding Pakki Receipt from the retail outlets. Chairman FBR received over half a dozen of invoices posted to him by Mr. Iqbal Ahmad Khan, a resident of Sector G-13/3, Islamabad who was truly excited to have discharged his national responsibility.

The Chairman FBR rang him up in person to thank Mr. Khan for his responsible act and designated him as the first Citizen Tax Ambassador for FBR in its ongoing national drive for tax compliance. It is pertinent to mention that FBR has already distributed prizes worth Rs. 53 million among the lucky 1007 winners in the first computerized ballot held on 15th January, 2022. It is also heartening to see that people are showing a lot of interest in becoming part of next computerized draw, which will be held on 15th February, 2022.
