The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) on Tuesday clarified that the board is not considering an extension in the date for filing annual income tax returns.
According to a statement by the FBR spokesperson, taxpayers should submit annual tax returns before September 30.
Taking notice of some news stories regarding a supposed extension in the date, the spokesperson categorically denied this was the case, stating that no proposal in this regard has been considered at the FBR headquarters.
Earlier this month, the FBR advised all taxpayers required to file tax returns by September 30, 2021, to fulfil 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.
FBR had clarified at the time that there will be no extension in the due date for filing income tax returns.
