NBR to sue ex-member of PSC Mahfuz

The National Board of Revenue (NBR) in a board meeting yesterday decided to file a tax evasion case against Mahfuzur Rahman, former Public Service Commission (PSC) member.
NBR sources said after examining the actual income of Mahfuzur Rahman, tax officials primarily found him guilty of concealing income in his income tax return.
Three other businessmen were also found guilty of the same charge and the board decided to file cases against them as well. Names of the three businessmen, however, were not disclosed by the NBR, added the sources.
Mahfuzur Rahman resigned from the PSC after the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) declared him a corruption suspect a few months back.
Sources said as per the decision of the NBR board meeting, cases will be filed against the guilty individuals under Section 163 and 164 of income tax rules.
According to the income tax ordinance, concealing income in the tax return is a punishable offence bearing a maximum penalty of upto five years imprisonment with fines.
