Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) Chairman Syed Muhammad Shabbar Zaidi on Thursday inaugurated the Urdu version of FBR’s website.
FBR’s Facilitation and Taxpayer Education (FATE) Wing Member Mustafa Sajjad Hassan and FATE Chief Tehmina Aamer briefed the chairman about the features of the Urdu website. The senior officers of the revenue board, including Nausheen Javed Amjad, Seema Shakil, Jawwad Awais Agha and Zubair Bilal, were also present on the inauguration.
According to an FBR statement, the Urdu version of the website has been launched to facilitate the taxpayers on issues pertaining to income tax, sales tax, customs and FBR Maloomaat. The Urdu version contains special features that would act as useful reservoirs of information regarding taxation and customs.
With the launch of the Urdu website, people would not only be able to file their complaints in Urdu but would also be able to seek responses to their queries in their national language. The website would enable the people to read the tax and customs laws and rules, SROs and circulars in Urdu.
The FBR chairman appreciated the FATE Wing officers for working tirelessly in making the launch of Urdu website possible in the shortest possible time. He stated that the revenue board would soon achieve complete automation to ensure taxpayers’ facilitation.
