ISLAMABAD: Renowned singer Aima Baig emptied all her banks accounts well before the Federal Board of Revenue could freeze the accounts in tax default case against the showbiz celebrity.

Recently, the FBR had sent tax notice for recovery of millions of rupees tax no paid in the past. However, before the FBR freezed the accounts, singer Aima Baig withdrew the entire amount of more than 25 million rupees and empties her bank accounts for FBR to cease them.

The FBR is now considering to seize her vehicles as Aima Baig is a defaulter of Rs85 million in income taxes, according to FBR. From 2018 to 2020, Aima Baig did not pay her taxes. The singer was served a notice by the FBR on January 14.

The singer has been in the headlines these days as she has been picked along with popular singer Atif Aslam to sing this year’s anthem of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). She was also featured in last year’s anthem ‘Groove Mera‘, which was a hit.

Baig is one of the most popular female voices in Pakistan. In the last seven years, she has recorded several hits and has won local and international awards.
