Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN) – The National Board of Revenue (NBR) has extended the deadline for submission of income tax returns by two days to October 2 instead of September 30.
The taxpayers can now submit their income tax return until Sunday as the deadline falls on Friday and Saturday.
The decision was taken on Wednesday, Syed A Amin, a spokesman for NBR reportedly said, adding that the taxpayers will get two more days due to the weekend.
