Online tax return submissions will help the taxpayers submit their return easily," MA Mannan said at the inaugural ceremony.

National Board of Revenue (NBR) chairman Md Nojibor Raman said the online tax return submission has been introduced on an experimental basis as part of NBR's digitization of tax management activities. This opportunity will be open for all from November 1, he added.
