Are charities subjected to tax?


I got an SMS from my Cellular company to send SMS and for each SMS they will send X money to Balochistan. Cost X Rs. + Tax.

I thought charities are exempted from Tax by Govt. then what is this?


Cellular operators are not charities.


I have been thinking the same thing for years. I even mailed shaukat khanam hospital people to ask. And they said they are not happy about it either..But that was the government standard procedure and they are unable to do anything about it.

What is the code for sending money through sms to balochistan earthquake effected people?


A charity where you can produce a receipt for charity (not possible with sms) and the ones that are approved under Income Tax Ordinance 2001 are expempted from tax.
