Weeklong tax fair begins in Dhaka
The annual income tax fair begins on Wednesday (Nov 1) to enable individual taxpayers to congregate and file returns and complete tax procedures all in one spot.
Within Nov 7, the National Board of Revenue is scheduled to hold the event for one or two days at the upazila level, for four days at district towns and for seven days in divisional cities.
It plans to offer cards and stickers reading “I am a proud taxpayer” to those who submit their income tax returns for the year 2017-18 at the fairs in Dhaka and Chittagong.
In Dhaka city, the fair will take place at the NBR's under-construction headquarters in Agargaon.
The NBR said it has expanded tax fair venues to 103 upazilas this year from 86 upazilas in the previous year to reach the grassroots in a bigger way in a bid to create awareness and motivate people to pay tax.
