NBR plans to reward tax-paying families
DHAKA : The National Board of Revenue (NBR) has planned to reward the families whose all eligible members submit income tax return.
“To motivate people for submitting income tax return, we’ve mulled to introduce tax-paying family award for those with all eligible members paying tax,” said NBR Chairman Nojibur Rahman.
He said the tax officials have already been directed to find the way for giving the reward.
The NBR Chairman revealed this while talking to BSS last week during a two-day visit to country’s southern region to boost revenue generation.
Mentioning that the tax payers are being welcomed warmly, Nojibur said taxpaying is a credit and now the people of Bangladesh feel proud of submitting income tax return.
During the visit, the NBR Chairman also attended two pre-budget discussions in Bagerhat and Gopalganj to know tax proposals from the people at the grassroots.
He laid emphasis on strengthening working cooperation among port and customs authorities for faster releasing of containers.
Nojibur hoped the new VAT Law to be effective from July 1 would bring more dynamism to country’s economy and sought cooperation from businessmen in the enforcement of the law.
