NTN Number online

You need to have a National Tax Number (NTN) if you are liable to pay income tax, property tax, or sales tax. 

If you are a filer, you may get rid of some other taxes. But you have to pay an increased tax rate on banking transactions, property transactions, and vehicle token if you are a filer. If your annual income is 6 lacs, you are liable to pay the income tax. You need to have an NTN to file the tax returns.

You can get your NTN number from FBR. You can avail it both through online or offline methods. However, you have to hire a Tax consultant to get NTN from FBR.
