Taxpayers will be unable to meet the deadline for e-filing of income tax returns for Tax Year 2014-15, due to several technical flaws in the FBR's newly launched IRIS software, tax experts said on Friday.

The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has recorded a enormous revenue shortfall of Rs 15.672 billion under the head of Sales Tax (ST) and Federal Excise Duty (FED) during first quarter of current fiscal year, it is learnt on Thursday. The FBR officials ruled out the possible decline in revenue collection at the time when the announcement of independence (Azadi) and revolution (Inqilab) marches by Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehrik (PAT) were made in August. But now, revenue figures of first quarter of current fiscal year have shown the adverse impact, reflecting that ongoing political impasse has seriously hit trade activities across the country.
