Tax return submission deadline extended to December 31
The National Board of Revenue (NBR) has extended the income tax return submission deadline to December 31, considering application of trade bodies.
NBR chairman Abu Hena Md. Rahmatul Muneem on Wednesday officially announced the time extension at a seminar organised on the occasion of National Income Tax Day 2022 at the conference hall of Revenue Bhaban in Segunbagicha.
Mohammad Muslim Chowdhury, Comptroller and Auditor General of Bangladesh, was present at the function as the chief guest.
The NBR chairman said said around 22 lakh returns were submitted till Tuesday (November 29).
Many new taxpayers are willingly submitting income returns this year and a good number of taxpayers sought time extension, he said.
He said income tax return submission process is being simplified so that people can pay tax in a hassle-free atmosphere.
Those who have taxable income must submit returns, otherwise, relevant law will be enforced to pay income tax, he said.
