ISLAMABAD - The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has sent a notice to PTI chief Imran Khan’s wife Reham Khan for not filing her income tax return of the year 2014.

“Yes, we have sent a notice to Reham Khan, as we come to know through some media reports that she had not filed her income tax return”, FBR spokesperson Shahid Hussain Asad said.

He told newsmen that Reham Khan would have to reply to the notice within 30 days, otherwise further process would be carried out against the former television anchor, he added.

“She does not have the national tax number (NTN), which is mandatory for the person earning handsome money, therefore, the FBR issued a notice to her,” said another official wishing not to be named. He said the Bureau is in fact issuing notices to all non-taxpayers who are not filing their income tax returns.

He informed that the government has a plan to include non-taxpayers into the tax net to broaden tax base of the country, and it has already issued notices to more than 150,000 non-taxpayers in last two years. Therefore, every non-taxpayer would be brought into the tax net, including Reham Khan, he concluded.

The FBR had issued a tax directory of all parliamentarians on April 10, which showed that Imran Khan, husband of Reham Khan, paid Rs218, 237 income tax during previous year 2014. However, Imran’s wife had not filed the income tax return, which compelled the FBR to issue a notice to her.
