A luxury car was found abandoned on a road adjacent to the customs intelligence office at Kakrail in the city on Tuesday mid-night.
Along with his Mercedes-Benz, the owner of the car also left a letter in which he claimed that he had abandoned the car just to respect the rule of law.
Earlier in April, two luxury cars were found in the same condition in Sylhet.
“NBR welcomes such a tendency as it gives us a signal that people are now trying to come out from the tax evasion tendency,” said Nojibur while addressing a workshop on “Value Added Tax and Supplementary Duty Act, 2012” held in the capital yesterday.
He also claimed that people are now dumping their tax-evaded luxurious vehicles spontaneously on the streets as they got the message that the existing leadership of NBR won’t bow down to any pressure.
NBR boss also claimed that the NBR has also been working successfully on preventing money laundering by filing some cases recently.
Appreciating the service holders, Nojibur said: “Executives of banks and financial institutions are paying their tax properly. Though there are some problems, we don’t want to terrify the people.”
He also assured the service holders of settling all the problems through negotiations.
Responding to a question that the bank executives are scared about NBR’s notice over tax collection, Nojibur said: “We will raise the issue at the review meeting on revenue collection to be held today (Thursday).”
NBR has undertaken various measures to create awareness through training programme over new VAT law.
