ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan will again address the nation on the federal government’s tax amnesty scheme, Express News reported on Friday.

The premier will urge the people to avail the tax amnesty scheme and declare their assets. There would be no relief for citizens after the passing of the June 11 federal budget, the PMO said.

On May 13, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government launched the tax amnesty scheme in an effort to encourage people to declare their hidden assets at extremely low tax rates from 1.5 per cent to 4pc. Yet, the people have not responded to the call.

The prime minister has twice gone on state media to appeal to the people to avail the tax amnesty scheme aimed at avoiding harsh action by the FBR from July.

Earlier this week, the federal cabinet also discussed the tax amnesty scheme but its deliberations remained focused only on how to make it attractive for people, according to a federal minister.
