Chittagong, Bangladesh (BBN) – A six-day income tax fair is scheduled to start on September 17 in Chittagong aiming to strengthen tax receipts and bring more people under the tax net, officials said on Monday.

Primary and Mass Education Minister Afsarul Amin is expected to inaugurate the fair at MA Aziz Stadium in the port city.

The National Board of Revenue (NBR) is going to organise the fair as part of an awareness campaign in all divisional cities. The fair emphasises awareness about the importance of income tax payment.

The fair will offer taxpayers suggestions about obtaining TIN certificates and income tax payments while officials will help the payers fill out the forms of income tax returns.
