NBR announces 141 top taxpayers
The National Board of Revenue (NBR) has announced the names of 141 highest tax-paying companies and individuals, including Bangladeshi tobacco tycoon Kaus Miah, for the fiscal year 2022-23.
Beating many top businessmen, Kaus Miah - the owner of old Dhaka-based Hakimpuri Jarda (chewing tobacco) - has been receiving the top taxpayer award for the past couple of years.
The NBR on Tuesday issued a statutory regulatory order (SRO) with the names of top taxpayers under different categories.
The NBR selected the taxpayers as per the National Tax Card Policy-2010 (amended). But the highest taxpayers in legal dispute have been dropped from the winners list as per the policies.
Based on income tax payment in fiscal year 2022-23, a total of 141 taxpayers-76 individuals, 53 companies and 12 in other categories- won the tax card.
