Asim Ahmed appointed as New FBR chairman

This is the sixth time the PTI-led government is appointing the FBR chairman.

This is a critical hour for the tax collection machinery as its performance becomes immensely important due to the country’s scrutiny under the strict supervision of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Official sources had told The News earlier this week: “The government has decided to appoint a new chairman of the FBR and different names are under consideration for the appointment of the sixth chairman under the rule of PTI-led government.”

One top official of the government, when contacted, told the publication that the government has decided to appoint the new chairman FBR probably from within the ranks of the board.

Ghani belonged to the Customs Group, so now the new chairman might be selected from the Inland Revenue Service (IRS) Group, the sources had said.
