FBR Takes Significant Facilitative Initiatives For Taxpayers

The FBR has taken Significant Facilitative Initiatives for the taxpayers including upgradation of the Iris system with the help of PRAL for issuing SMS and e-mails whenever any notice is issued or any assignment is created by Tax officer.

In line with the vision of the Prime Minister and Special Assistant to PM on Revenue, Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has taken significant initiatives to facilitate taxpayers by making compliance easier.

FBR in collaboration with PRAL, has launched a single-page simplified Income Tax Return for SME manufacturers having turnover upto Rs. 50 million which can be availed by individuals and AOPs.

This return is available on Iris portal and requires input of basic data relating to business activities conducted by eligible taxpayers during the period relevant to tax year 2020.

Likewise, FBR has upgraded Iris system with the help of PRAL for issuing SMS and e-mails whenever any notice is issued or any assignment is created by Tax officer. Previously, taxpayer would know about such notices/ intimations only after logging onto Iris portal.

With the objective of improving compliance with a facilitative environment, after Iris upgrade, taxpayers and intermediaries will receive notifications of such communications through SMS and e-mails making compliance easier and smarter.

FBR has launched a system Maloomaat-TaxRay wherein taxpayers can access all information available with the FBR by logging through a secure mechanism. For further facilitation, this feature has been launched in Mobile app, Tax Assan, so that taxpayers can easily access all such information.

FBR believes in high levels of tax facilitation and constantly using innovative technology for creating a faceless organization.


  • Nonsense…. Taxation easy banana responsibility hay, is pay konsi facility aa gai. Humari taraf say muskil kr din kis ko shoq hy fazool min tax deny ka. Facility hoti hy k healthcare benefits din ya aur social securities.

  • Any registered tax payer / pensioner who has no taxable income but his withholding tax is deducted at source eg at bank , mobile, internet etc but difficulties in getting refund from FBR through return submission. Should be fast and easy mechanism to get refund of withholding tax reduction

  • The responsibility is two sided, payment of tax by citizens and refunds as per law by the FBR, case in point withholding tax refund for registered taxpayers and senior citizens

    • This is a fact that for the last 4 years no tax refund has been processed in case of individuals. FBR and PM should take notice of this and a simple process of refund should be viewed as facilitation. Secondly, an incentive should be introduced for taxpayers who incurred losses like done in uk etc.

  • Majority small and mid size business particularly restaurant don’t pay taxes due to cash transactions. Government should step in for minimizing cash deals, it will automatically improve taxation and public service. Butt bribers..:) will never automate nor make efforts to digitize economy

  • FBR and Government should appreciate individually big Tax payer by a Gold Card and VIP Protocol as politician and higher authorities, that they are really beneficial for our Country and Gold Card should be workable for all type of journies by air, whether domestic or international journeys.
