On 25 September, there was an advert posted in newspapers by the FBR regarding the filing of income tax returns. As advertised, the final date for filing the returns was 30 September. I would like to take this opportunity the question the efficiency of the institution. Filing income tax returns is a process that could actually take a couple of days, a fact not acknowledged by FBR. Perhaps we should be happy that they gave everyone 5 days, instead of publishing the advert on the morning of 30 September.
