KARACHI: The Karachi Tax Bar Association (KTBA) has urged the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to extend the filing date of monthly withholding tax statements and sales tax statements for June till the 31st of the current month.

In a letter to the FBR chairman, president of the association, Syed Rehan Hasan Jafri, suggested that long holidays owing to Eidul Fitr kept the entire country on hold for around 10 straight days.

The KTBA chief said if the extension was granted it would not only help genuine taxpayers and withholding agents to meet their duties but it would also help the national exchequer to attain revenues.
