Say No To Extra Taxes

People in Pakistan pay taxes but the majority of them don’t know anything about it. They worry about being taxed differently but they don’t know about the different taxation metrics. Majority of the salaried individuals in Pakistan are unaware of how easily they can save taxes by getting adjustments from their employers and reduce their salary taxes. All employees are entitled to tax adjustments from their employers under the law.

Employers usually deduct income tax from your salary at source and submit it to FBR on your behalf but do not make any tax adjustment of the tax withheld under other heads by various agencies such as banks, telecom companies, educational institutions, airlines, electricity distribution companies, motor vehicle registration authorities, and many others.

It’s a golden opportunity for you as an employee of getting tax adjustments by submitting the relevant tax deduction document as a piece of evidence to your employer and reducing your tax by that amount. But remember to avail these adjustments you need to contact your employer before June so that these adjustments can be done in June payroll before year-end.
Tax deductions made by different agencies under Income Tax Ordinance, 2001 are;

Purchase and transfer of Immovable Property u/s 236K of Income Tax Ordinance, 2001;

Educational Institution Fee u/s 236I of Income Tax Ordinance, 2001;
Educational institutions are directed by FBR to collect tax on the fee paid to them by the students. This tax is paid by the parents of the students, or Guardians and is adjustable against their income tax liability. Such tax is only applicable when fee is exceeding Rs. 200,000 per annum and parent / guardian is a non-filer.
