Michael Inglis The Parliamentary Joint Committee on Law Enforcement has just handed down its report on the inquiry into financial-related crime, and that report will have been read very carefully by a number of commonwealth agencies, including the Australian Taxation Office.
What do “Scarface” Capone and a tax audit have to do with each other? They actually do have a bit of a connection. Scarface went to prison for TAX EVASION! Yup, not murder. Not racketeering. (Not sure if that was even on the books then.) Not gambling. You would never guess that charge and conviction for someone with as impressive of a criminal resume as you can find in the 20th century. But alas, the vicious gangster was sent to prison for eleven years for a tax crime.
Al “Scarface” Capone and The Financial Status Audit
LAHORE: (Web Desk) –Only 03% of Pakistanis, or a mere 500,000 individuals, pay direct tax, according to a report by advocacy group Research and Advocacy for the Advancement of Allied Reforms (RAFTAAR)
Either due to mistrust or owing to the lack of knowledge among the common people of Pakistan, the number of Pakistanis who pay taxes is just around 500,000 which makes only 0.3% of the country’s population. Another 400,000 file their returns according to the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) data but declare that they don’t have any taxable income. More people on airplanes right now than taxpayers in Pakistan
Unworthy ally in Pakistan
