FBR reiterates not to extend return filing date

ISLAMABAD: Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) on Friday reiterated its resolve for not extending the last date for filing annual returns beyond September 30, 2021.

In a statement, the FBR said that improvement of tax compliance culture is the prime objective of the government and the FBR is actively trying to achieve it with the cooperation of taxpayers.

The decision of non-extension in due date for filing of return last year saw an overwhelming response from taxpayers.

In view of this the Iris portal for filing of return this year was operationalized w.e.f 1st of July, 2021 in order to facilitate the compliant taxpayers.

FBR has advised all taxpayers required to file tax returns by September 30, 2021, to fulfill their legal obligation without waiting for the last date to avoid system delays which occur when a large number of taxpayers log in for submission of returns near the deadline.

The FBR has reiterated that there will be no extension in the due date for the filing of income tax returns.
