Another chance to become filer.
The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has extended the date for submission of Income Tax Return for the year 2018. It is very important to note that FBR has also announced that in order to be in the filer List, taxpayer has to submit their Income Tax Return within due date. Submitting your income tax return after the specified due date would not include you in the Filer list. Previously the due date for submission was 17 December 2018. But Govt. of Pakistan had decided to give some time to taxpayer who filed late or were unable to file their annual return and extended the due date to 31st March 2019. Now the FBR has decided to further extend the due date till 30th April 2019.
