The Chairman Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) Shabbar Zaidi has announced to launch a mobile application to help people file their tax returns.

The application called, “Income Tax Return App”  will be launched next week, Zaidi said.

The recently launched tax returns e-form for businesses and salaried individuals will also be uploaded on FBR’s website, he said.

The chairman said that they have also extended the last date for filing returns. The new deadline is September 30.

FBR’s Official Spokesperson and Member Policy Inland Revenue Hamid Ateeq said that the application will make the tax filing process a lot easier for individuals. He said that the app would be available on Google Play Store by next week.

He maintained that the application would have online tutorials to guide the filers. It will make tax filing convenient and efficient.

It’s unclear whether the Income Tax Return App will have other key features like an income tax calculator, house rent allowance calculator, rent receipt generator, etc.

Nevertheless, having an easily understandable and accessible way to file taxes is a good step towards increasing the tax base of the country. We’ll keep you posted on any new developments on this front.
