FBR launches drive to inform taxpayers of discrepancy in returns
Federal Board of Revenue FBR has launched a campaign to intimate the taxpayers electronically regarding the discrepancies found in their declarations and non-filing of tax returns and statements.
According to a press statement released to the media on Monday, the FBR has taken the step to facilitate the taxpayers and help them ensure a voluntary compliance before initiation of some legal action against them. The response to these e-intimations launched recently has been quite encouraging and FBR hopes the exercise would lead further to a voluntary compliance in this regard.
The FBR has further added that during the process of testing the e-Notification module to be used for issuing legal notices electronically, some of the taxpayers of LTU Islamabad were issued e-notices inadvertently for the tax year 2010 and those have been withdrawn. Inconvenience caused due to these e-notices is regretted.
