The National Board of Revenue has decided against extending the deadline for income tax return submission for those who are failing to file the papers within time amid a surge in coronavirus infections and deaths.

The last date for filing income tax returns is Nov 30, said NBR Chairman Abu Hena Md Rahmatul Muneem in a media briefing on Sunday, reports bdnews24.com.  

"The deadline has been set for Nov 30. There is no opportunity to extend the time period."

In other words, taxpayers who are yet to file their income tax returns must do so by Monday or risk facing a fine.

The announcement came after media reports leading up to the briefing indicated that the deadline for filing tax returns could be extended beyond Nov 30 amid a resurgence of Covid-19 cases and deaths in the country.
