After appointing 48 new employees recently, the number of officers and employees increased up to 124 now in all 22 circles under the Taxes Zone-Rangpur against 203 allocated posts.
"Following increase in number of manpower, we have planned to train university students for sending them in teams door-to-door to conduct surveys to identify 50,000 new taxpayers under the leadership of our employees during the current FY," Latif said.
"We have fixed a target of collecting Taka 851 crore income taxes during the 2019-2120 FY by increasing number of taxpayers and conducting door-to-door survey against Taka 630 crore collected as income taxes during the last 2018-2019 FY in the zone," he added.
