The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has introduced online hearing of tax audit and assessment cases to facilitate the tax payers.
“The FBR has launched the software of electronic hearing of tax audit and assessment cases to facilitate the taxpayers,” said a press release issued on Tuesday. “This has been done by enabling and functionalizing the e-hearing module in FBR’s Iris portal.”
The module enables online hearing in the form of dedicated hearing rooms established in field formations and from the places of taxpayers.
E-hearing would be recorded and archived for further legal and administrative utilisation, it said.
In the first phase, the module has been launched and tested in the Large Taxpayers Office (LTO) Islamabad, Regional Tax Office (RTO) Rawalpindi, RTO Faisalabad, and RTO Peshawar.
