KCCI for extension in last date for filing returns

KARACHI: President, Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Muffasar Atta Malik has called for extension in last date for filing Income Tax and Sales Tax returns at least for one month up to October 31.

This will enable the taxpayers to file their returns, who had been facing problems in filing their returns for various reasons.

Muffasar Malik, in a statement on Friday, said that many taxpayers might not be able to file returns by September 30, due to slow processing and constant congestions in the Online System, IRIS, followed by the Ashura holidays.

The internet and mobile phone services were totally suspended in Karachi and in other parts of Sindh on Muharram 8 and will continue to remain suspended on Muharram 9 and 10. Therefore, many taxpayers will not be able to submit their returns by the end of this month.
