As today (Friday) is the last day for filing of the income tax returns, the Federal Board of Revenue will keep open its offices till 12 midnight and the National Bank will remain open till 8pm. While the bureau has directed the filers that there will be no further extension in the submission date, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

FBR spokesman Asad Tahir Jappa warned that after the expiry of the returns submission date, the filers could face the imposition of a daily fine and imprisonment of up to two years. He said there would be no extension in the submission deadline. 

He stated that FBR online portal ‘Iris’ was working smoothly and its efficiency had been improved to handle the traffic.
