Shafaqna Pakistan: Prime Minister Imran Khan has paid almost Rs4.7 million tax in 37 years from 1981 to 2017 during which he was exempted from tax for few years whereas he paid a few hundred rupees tax in some years, documents reveal.

The highest ever tax paid by Imran Khan was in 2010 when he paid Rs1, 883,033 to the tax authorities. Similarly, the second highest income tax amount paid by Mr. Khan was Rs562,554 which he paid in year 2011.

Babar Sattar, counsel for Justice Qazi Faez Isa on Monday raised questions and highlighted that for some years his client’s (Justice Faez Isa) wife has paid even more tax than Prime Minister Imran Khan.

He mentioned Khan’s 2017’s annual tax return when he paid Rs103,763. The counsel argued before the Supreme Court that a person who himself pays that much tax how could he raise a finger at the others.

The News has carried out a probe to determine how much tax Imran Khan has paid every year since he was registered as a taxpayer in Pakistan. Whether he (Imran Khan) has declared the properties owned by his wives or not? The same question was raised by Justice Qazi Faez Isa in his letter to the President of Pakistan after a reference was filed against the SC judge on the advice of Prime Minister Khan.

A careful examination of last 25 years tax record of PTI chief Imran Khan shows that as against the principle set by the Prime Minister Office in a recent reference against the Supreme Court judge, the premier himself never declared the bank accounts or the foreign assets held by his children or wives even during the years corresponding to their married life.

The President of Pakistan, on recommendations of the Prime Minister Office has sent a reference to the Supreme Judicial CouncilSJC) against Supreme Court judge Justice Qazi Faez Isa alleging that he hasn’t declared asset held by his wife and children in United Kingdom and thus he should be sent home. In his letter to the President, Justice Isa had maintained that his wife and children are not dependent on him, living in UK and he was not under the obligation of declaring any assets held by them. However, the principle set by the Prime Minister office is different.

Keeping in the view the principle set by the Prime Minister office, scrutiny of tax record of the Prime Minister Imran Khan shows that he never declared any foreign bank accounts or assets held by his wife Jemima Goldsmith during the years of their marriage. Not only this, Imran Khan never declared any foreign bank accounts or foreign assets held by his two sons, who are now 23 and 20 years old. Imran did the same in cases of his second wife Reham Khan and third wife Bushra Maneka.

Imran Khan married to Jemima Goldsmith on June 21, 1995. Both separated through a divorce on June 22, 2004. Under the principle defined by the Prime Minister Office, Imran Khan was supposed to declare all the bank accounts and foreign properties held in the name of Jemima Goldsmith in the tax years 1994-95 (Financial Year ending June 30, 1995) to the year 2003-04 (Financial Year ending June 30, 2004). However, a careful examination of his tax record of the said period, Imran Khan never declared any bank account or asset of Jemima Goldsmith held by her abroad. Not only this, Imran Khan has two sons Sulaiman (born 1996) and Kasim (born 1999) … and PTI chief was also supposed to declare any bank accounts held by them or the assets in their names. However, Imran Khan never declared them in his tax returns.

Imran Khan announced his marriage with Reham Khan on January 6, 2015 and divorced her on October 30, 2015. So he was supposed to declare bank accounts and other assets in the name of Reham Khan, locally or abroad, in his annual Tax Returns for the tax years 2014-15 (Financial Year ending June 30, 2015) and 2015-16 (Financial Year ending June 30, 2016). He hasn’t.

Imran Kham announced his marriage with married Bushra Maneka on February 18, 2018. Under the principle defined by his office, he was supposed to declare assets in the name of Bushra Maneka in the annual tax returns and Wealth Statement for the tax year 2017-18 (Financial Year ending June 30, 2018). However, he only mentioned that as he was recently married (marriage took place some five months earlier) so he was not annexing her details.

Following are declaration made in his Wealth Statement annexed with his annual tax returns he filed with Federal Bureau of Revenue (FBR) in the years corresponding to married life of Imran Khan with Jemima Goldsmith;
