‘No extension in filing income Tax returns deadline’

ISLAMABAD: With just two days left in the last date for the income tax returns, the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) on Thursday announced that there would be no extension in the deadline.
The FBR has started collecting income tax returns from salaried business individuals and associations of persons (AOPs).
The last date to submit your tax returns is September 30, 2023. “The last date for the submission of tax returns remains September 30,” the country’s top tax collection body said.
However, an exception can be made for those who submit a request for an extension in advance and a 15-day period can be given to the petitioner for the submission of tax returns. The FBR also said that over 1.7 million filers have submitted their tax returns so far and the number is likely to exceed 2 million by the last date. The tax slabs for year 2022-23 approved by the former government are: For income below Rs600,000 per year (Rs50,000 per month) — no tax will be deducted
