  • Documents detailing tax payments submitted by Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif show that he paid Rs 9.77 million in wealth tax from 1993 to the end of his “forced exile” in November 2007. However, the wealth tax column was kept blank from 2009 to 2015.


  • The statement showed Rs 2.49 million was paid as income tax during the current fiscal year, but the column for agricultural tax was left blank.


  • Another document revealed that 12 industrial units owned by the Sharif group paid Rs 9.87 billion in taxes between October 1993 and April 2016.
