ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tax Bar Association (PTBA) has demanded Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to extend the date of e-filing of income tax returns by December 15, 2013.
In a letter sent to FBR Chairman Tariq Bajwa, PTBA said that it seems impossible to file income tax returns within extended deadline as there are serious problems in FBR’s website. It said that just a few taxpayers are able to perform their statutory obligations due to these issues.
The PTBA has demanded FBR to extend the date or allow filing of manually filled tax returns for the tax year 201. It further said that taxpayers had kept requesting that tax return form should be hassle free.
PTBA said that tax return forms were finalised only a month ago following the deadline ie November 30, 2013, which in PTBA’s opinion, was illegal as law gives three months from the date of finalisation of the tax return form.
