NBR touches milestone in e-return filing

24 November 2022


Staff Reporter  :
The National Board of Revenue (NBR) has touched a new milestone of digitally tax return filling as one lakh taxpayers in this fiscal year have submitted their tax return in online till Tuesday.
The NBR revealed the data on November 22 while the tax officials and the revenue administration celebrated the moment at its head office in the capital.
"It is not only a matter to be celebrated by NBR but also by the taxpayers of Bangladesh as online submission of tax return has made it easier and comfortable for the them to comply with the tax laws," NBR Chairman Abu Hena Md. Rahmatul Muneem made the remarks in the celebrating ceremony.
The other tax officials also stressed that the digitally income tax return submission across the country has drastically increased this year due to the budgetary amnesty for TIN holders who have never filed their tax returns and mandatory return submission evidence to get some essential services.
Commenting on the matter, NBR member (tax audit intelligence & audit) Pradyut Kumar Sarkar said, "The online submission rose to 1 lakh for the tax year 2022-23 after the service started on 25 August this year. In last fiscal year, around 60 thousand taxpayers filled return digitally during October, 2021 to June, 2022 period."
"We are trying to promote the system through programme and webinar to woo the taxpayers and minimise the time and hassle of return filling" said the official and adding that "Celebrating the moment to encourage the team and give the stimuli so that they increase their efforts."
The taxpayers prepared their returns through online and the submission has kept soaring every moment, the tax officials added.
The online submission has created an easy and accessible opportunity for the returnees and acted as stimuli to submit return online.
NBR member (tax information, management and services) Md Jahid Hassan said, "We are getting positive response from taxpayers about digitally return filling."
October Last year, the NBR introduced an online tax return submission module for individual taxpayers.
Taxpayers can submit and prepare their returns online and they can pay tax and get other facilities. The returnees are also getting acknowledgment of the return  
submission from the online and registration is totally hassle-free.
The tax authority is currently observing 'Tax Service Month' to facilitate taxpayers to file their tax returns timely for the year 2022-23 and the initiative will end on November 30 which is the deadline for the submission.
The budget speech said by April 2022, the number of TIN holders had increased to 75.10 lakh and the number of tax returns to 29 lakh by March 2022.  The government is aiming to increase the TIN holders to 10 million.
