After the audit of Aslam’s income for the year 2018, Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has sent him a notice to pay his taxes within a month’s time. If the singer fails to do so, the revenue board will freeze his accounts. FBR will then recover the taxes from his frozen accounts.
It should be noted that this is not for the first time a Pakistani musician has come under the revenue board’s radar. Previously, FBR launched an investigation against Rahat Fateh Ali Khan in October 2020, where he was also sent a tax notice.
