Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s wife a tax defaulter, Excise Dept seizes her car

The Excise Department officials have seized the car of renowned singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s wife on Friday for being a tax defaulter, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Nida Rahat could not remember to pay the token tax of her car for the last 10 years, pushing the Excise officers to impound the vehicle at Wateen Chowk in Lahore.

Nida Rahat is a token tax defaulter of Rs132,000.

It may be mentioned here that Rahat Fateh Ali Khan himself has recently been sent a notice by the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) over his assets and bank accounts.

Media reports say the Afreen singer was asked to submit his reply to the Bureau. Previously, he failed to give satisfactory explanations about his sources of income when he was given a notice in December 2020.

The FBR started investigating Rahat’s finances last year in October. The FBR made an inquiry of his earnings from concerts abroad and the amount of tax paid by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.

The bank accounts under question were traced back to Rahat and the FBR demanded a reply from him by December 23. Another notice has been given to him then.

Recently FBR also sent a tax notice of 58 million to the pop star Atif Aslam. The Dil Diyaan Gallan singer has a month to pay all his dues, otherwise all his assets will be seized by the FBR for recovery.
