The National Board of Revenue has collected Tk 1,899.39 crore as taxes in the first six days of its weeklong countrywide tax fairs, which is 6 percent higher year-on-year.
In addition, the number of income tax return submission surged 53 percent year-on-year to 4.12 lakh during the period.
Higher presence of taxpayers helped NBR achieve the growth, according to taxmen.
This is the ninth year that the tax authority is holding the event to provide assistance to individual taxpayers to complete their tax-related formalities and create a tax culture in the country.
Apart from holding the event in all divisional cities, the NBR organises the show at 21 district towns and 38 upazilas.
The fairs end at 5pm today.
