The new coalition government, in its first federal budget 2022-2023, made changes to the income tax collection bracket.

Presenting the budget, Finance Minister Miftah Ismail said the annual income tax threshold had been increased from 600,000 rupees to 1.2 million rupees.

This proposal effectively means that there will be no income tax for people earning up to Rs 100,000 per month.
