East West Media Group Limited (EWMGL), a concern of Bashundhara Group, has been named the highest taxpayer (FY 2020-21) in the print and electronic media category for the sixth time.

The Bangladesh Pratidin, Kaler Kantho, Daily Sun,, NEWS24 television, T-Sports TV and Radio Capital 94.8 FM are the media outlets of EWMGL.

The Internal Resources Division under the Ministry of Finance on November 16 issued a gazette notification, publishing the names of the highest taxpayers.

A total of 141 persons and organisations made up to list of highest taxpayers under three categories.

As per rules, the highest taxpayers will avail themselves of tickets on a priority basis during highway, waterway and airway travels. They will be able to use VIP lounge at the airport, get seats at the hospitals during treatment and service at the hotel and restaurants on a priority

basis. The highest taxpayers will be invited to all state functions and programmes.

By end of November, NBR is expected to distribute tax cards and certificates among the highest taxpayers.

The recognition for the highest taxpayers is mandated by the National Tax Card Policy, 2010 (Amended).

NBR has been awarding tax cards to top taxpayers in separate categories for the last couple of years.
