KARACHI: Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) on Wednesday demanded the tax authorities to extend the last date for filing income tax returns for tax year 2020.
In a message, Mian Anjum Nisar, President, FPCCI said that the date should be extended to facilitate the taxpayers considering spread of coronavirus.
The last date for filing income tax returns for tax year was expired on December 08, 2020. Many taxpayers were unable to meet the deadline and are now receiving notices from the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to file their returns along with fine and penalty.
Further, the FBR notices also contain warning of prosecution in case the returns are not filed along with fine and penalty.
