The taxmen Monday received 91 income tax returns and issued 32 electronic taxpayers identification numbers (e-TINs) in favour of the taxpayers in a day-long tax camp in the capital.

The taxpayers paid around Tk 0.55 million against the returns submitted in the camp arranged by tax zone-6 in city's New Market and Elephant Road area. Some 896 taxpayers received different services.

Vice chancellor (VC) of Dhaka University (DU) Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman was chief guest in the programme while National Board of Revenue (NBR) member (tax survey and inspection) Ziauddin Mahmud was special guest. A K Borhanduddin, income tax commissioner of the tax zone-6, presided over the programme.

Dhaka Mohanagar Shop Owners' Association president Toufiq Ehsan, Dhaka New Market Samity president Dr Dewan Aminul Islam Shahin, Dhaka South City Corporation councilor of Ward-18 Jasimuddin Ahmed and Ashraf Uddin Ahmed FCA also attended the programme.

Speaking at the programme, the DU VC laid emphasis on ensuring taxpayer-friendly environment.

NBR member Mahmud urged the taxpayers to show actual income in the returns and pay tax regularly in a hassle-free environment.

Officials said the taxpayers expressed their satisfaction over the services like e-TIN registration, re-registration, submission of income tax returns, obtaining income tax certificates and different advisory services provided at the camp.

The taxpayers' response has encouraged the taxmen to provide better and efficient services at the camp, they said.
