The National Board of Revenue (NBR) has decided to extend this year’s income tax fair time by five hours for the last three days from Sunday (Nov 5) to Tuesday (Nov 7) after getting huge response from the taxpayers.
The fair is now open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The previous timing was 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This is the 8th income tax fair which is a week-long. The fair is being held at 71 other spots across Bangladesh.
On the fourth day of fair at the NBR Bhaban in Dhaka's Agargaon on Saturday, the board collected around Tk 2.17 billion in taxes, according to several reports.
Around 53,625 taxpayers submitted returns and a total of around 200,000 received tax-services at the fair on the fourth day.
