Islamabad: According to news published on Wednesday, the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) received 2.213 million returns up till October 12 with an additional tax collection of Rs. 41.895 billion (October 13).
According to the figures, 2.190815 million people used the internet system to file income tax returns, with a total deposit of PKR 41.397 billion. By October 12, the number of filers had risen to 2.213 million, with PKR 41.895 billion in deposits.
It’s worth noting that the deadline for both new and old taxpayers to file income tax forms was September 30; however, due to technical problems on that date, taxpayers were given an extension. For the first time ever, more than 1.8 million returns were filed in less than 90 days (till September 30).
FBR reported that 600,000 returns were filed across the country from October 1 to 3. The FBR also stated that the Export Facilitation Scheme 2021 has been expanded to all indirect and direct vendors and exporters, allowing items to be easily moved from one user to another.
