Taxpayers unable to file statements due to FBR software breakdown

KARACHI: Taxpayers have failed to file their monthly withholding statement due to breakdown of online software of Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), Karachi Tax Bar Association (KTBA) said on Thursday.
In a communication sent to FBR chairman, the KTBA said that the IRIS – the FBR’s online software for filing return/statement – was witnessing breakdown since February 12 and the fault was remained unresolved till February 15, 2018, which is the last date for filing monthly withholding statement for the month of January 2018.
The KTBA said the breakdown on the system had not allowed the taxpayers to even submit application for extension.
