The compliance with this provision of law is essential to ensure documentation of economy. However , contrary to this requirement , it has come to the notice of Government of the Punjab that a large number of employees are not filling their Income Tax Returns.

This is misconception , which is against the above provision of Law. 3. Foregoing in view , all the officers / Officials working under Government of the Punjab are directed to fill their legal obligation of filling returns of their Taxable income for i.e. the new dead line set by the FBR. 4.
