SIALKOT: Federal Tax Ombudsman (FTO) Mushtaq Ahmed Sukhera has stressed the need to further improve tax payment and collection systems to provide maximum relief to exporters and the public. He said that the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) should remove hurdles in the way of national exports by reducing the prolonged pendency of the customs, income tax and sales tax refunds claims. He stated this while addressing a meeting of exporters at the Sialkot Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) on Thursday. Sukhera added that the FBR should ensure early payment of duty drawback, income tax and sales tax refunds claims to ensure smooth flow of cash in the industry. FTO assured the exporters that their tax-related problems would be resolved on priority.
