Taxpayers get 3 months more for eTIN registration

downloadNational Board of Revenue has extended the deadline for Electronic Taxpayers Identification Number (eTIN) registration by three months more due to poor response, officials said.

They said the deadline extend to March 31 next year. The previous deadline for eTIN registration expired yesterday.

Some 9.5 lakh taxpayers registered with eTIN, including around 1.77 lakh new ones.

Field officials said they failed to bring taxpayers under eTIN mainly due to political turmoil. Meanwhile, taxpayers alleged they were facing problems to deal with the issue.

To solve the problem, NBR is working on establishing a separate cell to deal with the eTIN related issues.

“From the very beginning, the eTIN cell lacks proper manpower and equipments to accomplish the tasks. To provide regular and hassle-free services to taxpayers, we strongly feel establishing a separate unit which will technically assist the team,??? said an official, who works with eTIN services.

The revenue authorities introduced the system on July 1 to boost revenue collection, reduce hassles and prevent issuance of fake TINs.

With the new system, the existing 10-digit TIN will be replaced with 12-digit ones. According to the newly introduced system, computer generated TIN certificates will be issued as soon as the application procedure is completed online.
