An official statement said that following the decision of non-extension in due date for filing of return last year, the FBR saw an overwhelming response from taxpayers.
In view of this, the Iris portal was operationalised from July 1, in order to facilitate compliant taxpayers.
FBR has advised all taxpayers to file their returns by end of the current month to fulfil their legal obligations without waiting for the last date to avoid system delays which occur when a large number of taxpayers log in for submission of returns near deadline.
FBR has reiterated that there will be no extension in the due date for filing of income tax return, added the announcement.
