The total number of e-TIN holders increased but tax return holders did not

Even though most international conferences and major events are being held, the National Board of Revenue (NBR) has decided not to organize the Tax Fair this year because of the pandemic. 

In this regard NBR chairman Abu Hena Md Rahmatul Muneem said: “Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a direct tax fair is not going to be organized. However, from November 1 to 30, tax services will be provided to develop a month-long tax culture and raise awareness among taxpayers.”

Along with this, he informed that around 18 lakh people have registered for e-TIN (Tax identification number) in the last 14 months. 

With this, the total number of e-TIN holders has reached 67 lakh 93 thousand.

Although the number has increased across the country, the number of tax return holders has not increased at the same ratio. 

The NBR Chairman disclosed this information in a press briefing at his office in the capital's Segunbagicha on Tuesday, October 26.

According to the NBR, the number of new e-TIN holders increased by 26% or 13 lakh in the last fiscal year 2020-21. 

Since July this year, the number has increased by 5 lakh.

In the last fiscal year, out of the 50 lakh e-TIN holders, only 22 lakh submitted returns.

It was also mentioned at the press conference that the taxpayers will be able to file their returns completely online this year excluding some exceptions. 

Efforts are underway to introduce this facility quickly for those whose tax is deducted at the source. 

Additionally, there will also be a return acceptance booth and help desk at the Bangladesh Secretariat and Officers Club from November 1 to 14 to facilitate the return of government officials.

For the members of the armed forces, all the information services on return and tax will be provided for two days on November 9 and 10, at Sena Malancha in Dhaka Cantonment.

Best Taxpayer Honors

Tax cards will be issued to 141 top taxpayers on November 24, on the occasion of the month-long tax service. 

At the district and city corporation level, 666 best taxpayers will be given crests, recognition and honorary certificates.

In the four tax regions of Chittagong, the best taxpayers will be honoured centrally and all other tax regions outside those two will honour the best taxpayers based on the district and city corporations through proper formalities under their own management.

The NBR chairman said that the National Income Tax Day would be celebrated on November 30.

From 2010 to 2019, NBR consistently organized income tax fairs where the taxpayers usually get all kinds of services under one roof.
