Weeklong income tax fair begins from Nov 1
The NBR will hold the Dhaka fair at its own building in Agargaon. "The income tax fair will be held in a total of 150 places across the country and the taxpayers will be able to file tax return online from the fair for the first time this year," NBR member Md Abdur Razzak told BSS. The fair will also be held in all districts and 86 upazilas. The fair at district level will last four days. And at the upazila level, the duration will be one or two days, according to NBR statements. The NBR will also observe the National Income Tax Day on November 30. The NBR is going to hold the fair in November this year instead of mid-September as scheduled earlier. November 30 will be the last date for the submission of income tax returns unlike the previous years when September 30 was the deadline. "There is no scope to extend the deadline for submission of income tax return through an executive order as the budget for fiscal year 2016-17 has fixed the date and the budget is the law," said an NBR official. To reduce the hassle for taxpayers, NBR has simplified the income tax return form from this year, he added.
