Many cite corruption and government inefficiency as reason for not paying up amid effort to widen nation’s tax base.

But according to official figures, only about 1.4 million people out of a population of 150 million are expected to pay their taxes this year. Many Bangladeshis cite corruption and government inefficiency as reasons for not paying.
