TO GO WITH PAKISTAN-ECONOMY-TAX,FOCUS BY NASIR JAFFRY A Pakistani tax official works on his laptop at a tax office in Islamabad on November 14, 2012. Pakistan is banking on a new amnesty to bring millions of tax evaders into the revenue net but analysts warn the scheme is a charter for cheats that will encourage money laundering and could 'destroy the tax system'. The chairman of the Federal Board of Revenues (FBR) Ali Arsahd Hakeem told AFP that the country's main revenue collection authority, is hoping to lure up to three million non-payers with a special offer, though he conceded it was a 'gigantic task'. Total tax revenue amounted to a paltry 9.6 percent of GDP in 2010-11, among the lowest in the world. AFP PHOTO/Aamir QURESHI (Photo credit should read AAMIR QURESHI/AFP/Getty Images)
