Over 88,000 tax cases pending in courts



ISLAMABAD:

Around 88,317 cases, involving an amount of Rs2.611 trillion, had been pending in different courts by the end of October 2022, according to the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) data.

Of those, 75,021 cases involving Rs2.382 trillion were related to the Inland Revenue Service whereas 13,296 cases involving Rs229.7 billion were related to the Customs department, according to the data breakdown.

The data came after the Senate Standing Committee on Finance, in its November 23 meeting, gave the FBR 15 days for submitting the details of cases awaiting adjudication in various courts.

Committee Chairman Senator Saleem Mandviwala expressed concern over the delay in settling tax cases, which was causing a huge revenue loss.
