The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has given people an extra month to file their income tax returns for Tax Year 2023, extending the deadline to October 31, 2023.
This decision was made in response to requests from trade associations and tax bar groups. However, it’s important to note that there won’t be any further extensions beyond this date, as emphasized in an FBR notification issued on Saturday.
The FBR made this announcement on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, stating, “Due to requests from trade associations and tax bar groups, we’ve decided to push back the deadline for filing income tax returns for Tax Year 2023 to October 31, 2023.” They also added, “But please be aware that there won’t be any more extensions.”
FBR officials shared that more than 1.7 million individuals have already submitted their tax returns, and they expect this number to surpass two million by September 30.

Just two days ago, the FBR had stated that they wouldn’t extend the deadline for tax return submissions, which was initially set for September 30.
