LAHORE: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) in collaboration with the Lahore Chamber of Commerce & Industry on Tuesday established Income Tax Facilitation Desk at Lahore Chamber of Commerce & Industry premises to receive income tax returns from taxpayers.
FBR has deputed three officials of the department to receive the returns. The desk has been established on the directions of Federal Finance Minister Ishaq Dar.
The LCCI Acting President Mian Tariq Misbah had brought into the notice of the Federal Finance Minister that a large number of businessmen were unable to file their returns on time only because of the complex tax procedures. Therefore, either, the time for filing of income returns should be extended or a dedicated desk should be established at the LCCI to facilitate all those members who were facing problems.
The LCCI has, meanwhile, appealed to all its members to avail the facility. The desk has been setup in the Membership Department of the LCCI and would work as per LCCI timings.
