The misuse of CNIC for tax purposes is a significant issue in Pakistan. Every taxpayer should be aware of the potential misuse of their CNIC and take steps to prevent it. The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has made it easier for taxpayers to check any misuse of their CNIC by logging into their Iris account and searching through the MIS tab.
The MIS tab on the Iris portal is a centralized system that records all tax transactions made by an individual or any other taxpayer during a particular year. If a person notices any transactions mentioned on their name which they have not made, they should report these transactions to the FBR immediately.
In some cases, audit notices are issued based on transactions showing on a taxpayer’s name that they have failed to mention in their income tax return. Therefore, it is essential to keep an eye on any potential misuse of your CNIC for tax purposes.
If you find any misuse of your CNIC, whether through the MIS system or email or any other means, you should report it immediately. You can report the misuse of your CNIC by contacting the FBR helpline at email@example.com, filing a written application and submitting it to the relevant Regional Tax Office (RTO), or calling or emailing the party who has misused your CNIC.
In conclusion, it is crucial to keep a close eye on any potential misuse of your CNIC for tax purposes. The FBR has made it easier for taxpayers to check for any misuse through the MIS tab on their Iris account. If you notice any misuse, you should report it immediately to avoid any legal issues. Remember, it is better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your taxes.
