All tax offices will remain open on the next weekly holidays to facilitate submission of income tax returns by individual taxpayers within the deadline of November 30, the National Board of Revenue said yesterday.
The tax offices will be open from 9:00am to 8:00pm every day till November 30, NBR spokesperson Syed A Momen told The Daily Star over the phone.
This year, the government has termed November 30 as Tax Day.
The NBR will observe a tax week from November 24 to 30 for providing services to taxpayers.
There is no possibility of extending the deadline for submission of tax returns this time. And taxpayers will have to pay a penalty if they submit those after the deadline, added the NBR.
In the current fiscal year, the government brought changes in the tax law to end the culture of deadline extension that the NBR did in the past on demand from various quarters.
