It is clear now that no of tax returns
are increasing day by day. But most important thing is that either tax revenue is increasing or not. Documentation of economy is always need of the hour. Which now government and FBR is already targeting. But how much such tax returns are reliable ? and how much increase in tax revenue ? Is it contributing ? should be a matter of interest of the government and FBR.
It is also important now to provide knowledge to general public about tax.That what is a right way to submit tax return. For submission of Tax Return 2019 Last date is 31st October 2019. FBR will increase the last date for submission of tax return of 2019.
