The National Board of Revenue extended the deadline for individual tax return submission to December 31.
NBR chairman Abuhena Rahmatullil Munim on Wednesday announced the extended deadline at a programme marking the National Income Tax day 2022 at the seminar room of the revenue board in Bangladesh capital Dhaka.
About bout 2.2 lakh TIN holders submitted income-tax returns so far and Tk 30,000 crore were collected in tax from individuals until Tuesday, according to provisional figures.
Some 2.6 million individuals submitted their tax-returns as of June 30 of the past tax year, according to the revenue board.
The NBR has received requests from a cross section of people, including the apex chamber, to extend the deadline for submitting tax returns by individual taxpayers.
Though the NBR received a huge response this time around, tax return submission by individuals was yet to reach expected level until Tuesday.
According to NBR, the country has around 80 lakh TIN holders.
