The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has reportedly sent Atif Aslam a tax notice worth 58 million after the audit of his income for the year 2018.
According to reports, Aslam has been given one month’s notice to pay the tax. If the singer fails to pay the due amount, the revenue board will make the recovery by freezing his bank accounts.
This is not the first time a member of the entertainment industry has come on FBR’s radar. In October 2020, the FBR launched an inquiry to investigate Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s sources of income.
Earlier in 2019, the FBR also launched an initiative to collect tax from the citizens and requested showbiz and media personalities to declare their assets, warning them that if they don’t they will also face disciplinary action.
Meanwhile, Atif is one of Pakistan’s biggest stars. Earlier, the singer made it to the inaugural Forbes Asia’s 100 Digital Stars list. The list highlights celebrities from across the Asia Pacific region who have taken the digital world by storm, according to a press release.
