E-return services at help desks making it easy to pay taxes

NBR says that the overall tax returns from the second week of the income tax service month have been satisfactory

Taxpayers are increasingly getting interested in the e-return services at help desks set up across the country this year as the income tax fair has been postponed due to Covid-19.

They want to know how to use this service to pay taxes at home even without having to be physically present for filing their returns.

The National Board of Revenue (NBR) also said that the overall tax returns from the second week of the income tax service month have been satisfactory.

Dipok Kumar, deputy commissioner and second secretary of the NBR, told Dhaka Tribune that like last year, the tax fair could not be organized this year either. 

“As an alternative, however, special services for taxpayers have been arranged throughout the month of November,” he added.

He also said that in this second week of November, good revenue has been deposited in the state coffers through tax returns.

“Today [Thursday] is the last day of the week, but returns are still coming in from tax regions across the country. Hopefully, by the end of the second week, that is, on Sunday, we will be able to provide information about the filing of income tax returns,” he added.

Kumar also said the NBR has been getting great response from taxpayers regarding e-returns. 

A two-day income tax return and special service program on taxation for members of the armed forces, organized on November 9 and 10 at Shena Malancha, ended on Wednesday.

Although this year's income tax fair has been postponed due to Covid-19, the income tax return service has started across the country from the first day of November.

As a part of this, help desks have been set up in all tax regions. 

Taxpayers are getting the help of NBR officials from these help desks.

NBR is observing November as the month of income tax service to provide all the necessary services to the taxpayers. 

This service is being provided in 31 tax regions and 649 tax circles of the country.
