Yes, it is confusing statement.
At provincial level (in Punjab & Sindh) AIT is applicable according to finance bill 2013, but at federal level it is exempted.
lol agriculture ka feudalism sai kya laina daina
m agree wid raza ..according to quran point of view all natural things which grow from land we hav to pay zakat 10percent.while on income it is 2.5percent.so tax should be imposed
Ushar (10% or 5% on Baraani & Non-Baraani), aabyana, tehsil & choongi tax already applicable on farmers in Pakistan.
in simple words i used word zakat.. ...tehsil nd chungi tax is not relevant to the topic so dont tell us all taxes list..
Because might be our views are opposite
I have arguments against the AIT and I think you are in favor, therefore these factors might be not important for your point of view.
tax should be imposed on agriculture in pakistan but rates should be variable for rich and poor farmers.the rich farmers which are escaping from any tax Even people owning farmland who are not farmers for the purposes of taking advantage of this provision are renting out residence and their income is escaping the government has to revise the tax brackets or exempt only those farmers, owning less than a specific size of land, from taxation.growing inflation in country will decrease in result.
Zakat rizaq ko pak karne ke liyah de jati hai. Tax social status ke liyah deya jati hai.
