Documents required for filing of Income Tax Return for a Salaried Person
In Pakistan, if your annual salary is more than Rs. 400,000/-, your employer will deduct tax at source.
However, if your income is less than Rs. 400,000/- annually, you can still choose to be a tax filer and
get the benefits that come with it. Filing income tax returns in Pakistan is mandatory if your annual
salary is more than 400,000/-.
Filing your income tax return means that you are providing the government with a record of your
earnings and expenses for the year. This information is used to calculate your taxes owed.
