LAHORE: The Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has urged the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to extend the date for filing income tax returns till December 31. In a statement, LCCI President Malik Tahir Javed said that extension till at least December 31 will be a “good favour” towards the business community and will also help the FBR in meeting its revenue targets. They said that businessmen remained busy in the elections of trade bodies besides tackling a number of issues including lack of awareness about FBR’s online systems. “Therefore, majority of businessmen cannot file their returns within the given timeframe,” they added.
