ISLAMABAD: Tax advisers/lawyers and chartered accountants have approached the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to extend the date for filing of income tax returns up to November 30, 2022, on humanitarian grounds in view of devastating floods.

According to a communication of Javed Iqbal Qazi, Advocate Supreme Court to the FBR chairman on Monday, it is requested for an extension in time for filing of income tax returns for the Tax Year 2022, which falls due on September 30, 2022, on the grounds that due to heavy monsoon and consequent flash floods in the country and also the consequent surge of dengue fever throughout the country, the taxpayers are not in a position to discharge their statutory liability by the said deadline.

It will not be out of place to highlight that due to heavy and unexpected flash floods, nearly one third of Pakistan has faced very serious floods and the economic effects have devolved to the people of Pakistan; especially the middle class.

In view of the above and in the interest of justice, it is therefore, requested that the taxpayers/the tax advisors be facilitated in this most difficult time being faced by the country and the last date of filing of returns be extended to November 30, 2022, Qazi added.

Chairman FBR is humbly requested to enhance the date of filing upto at least to 31 Nov 2022 in view of devastating floods in the country as most of effluent country men are busy in relief works to help ease suffering of the our brothers stuck in flash floods. Allah will bless u for the noble action.

Tax year ended 30th June. Three months already given i.e till 30th Sep to file tax returns for 2021-2022. So the public wants another 2 months? What a joke!

whoever is saying that there's no need for the extension, did you file your tax returns? Yes? then shut up and be considerate of others.

It’s really good. But need to extend tax Reckit rather then screwup regular payers. Also need provide awareness rather then developing tax consultants.
