The deadline for income tax return submission has been extended by one month by the National Board of Revenue (NBR).
The matter was confirmed by Abu Hena Md Rahmatul Muneem, chairman of NBR, on Monday.
“The taxpayers now can file their tax returns by 31 December,” he said while briefing reporters at his office in the capital in the afternoon.
The decision was taken following the demands as the majority of taxpayers are yet to file income tax statements and disruption in the collection of documents and preparing them.
It is to be noted that the regular deadline scheduled to expire today. As of Monday, 15 lakh of the holders of 50 lakh taxpayer-identification numbers (TIN) had filed the returns of their income.
