KARACHI: Pres­i­dent of the Karachi Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try (KCCI), Muf­fasarAtta Ma­lik has de­manded that the last date for fil­ing In­come Tax/ Sales Tax Re­turns has to be ex­tended by upto De­cem­ber 31, 2017, which would en­able those tax­pay­ers who had been fac­ing prob­lems in fil­ing their re­turns due to nu­mer­ous rea­sons, to sub­mit their re­turns.

In a state­ment is­sued, Muf­fasar Ma­lik said that many tax­pay­ers may not be able to file re­turns by November 15, 2017 due to slow pro­cess­ing and con­stant con­ges­tions in the Online Sys­tem, IRIS. He noted that IRIS servers were too busy due to ex­ces­sive load as large num­ber of tax­pay­ers were si­mul­ta­ne­ously fil­ing In­come Tax/ Sales Tax Re­turns un­der sec­tion 147 and monthly state­ment un­der sec­tion 165 of the In­come Tax Or­di­nance. Pres­i­dent KCCI said that the com­pli­ca­tions in online sys­tem were not some­thing new to tax­pay­ers as ev­ery year, sub­mit­ting re­turns usu­ally be­comes an up­hill task.
