FBR launches yet another initiative for the income tax returns filing
ISLAMABAD - Federal Board of Revenue launches yet another initiative for the income tax returns filing in Pakistan.
The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has launched an updated version of its ‘Tax Asaan’ app for filing salaried and non-salaried tax returns. It also allows new taxpayers to register online.
This came to light on Thursday when the Member Policy, Dr. Hamid Ateeq Sarwar, gave a detailed presentation to the Senate Standing Committee on Finance and Revenue.
Dr. Hamid informed the Senate that App was launched mid-September, but earlier, it was earlier limited to salaried class. The new version will now cover all incomes and assets of salaried and non-salaried individuals.
He later spoke to media and revealed that the revenue watchdog has received over 50,000 salary returns digitally and thousands of downloads of the app within the first 24 hours of launch.
He hoped that the hassle-free filing will encourage more and more people to become filer.
