The National Board of Revenue or NBR has made the decision to encourage online return submission, said Alamgir Hossain, a member of NBR's Income Tax Policy Division.

The time of obtaining the Tax Identification Number or TIN will not affect the process to get the discount, he told bdnews24.com on Tuesday.

The NBR had mentioned the discount in its gazette published after the passage of the national budget for the 2020-21 fiscal year as well, he added.

The taxpayers who have submitted returns in the traditional method will not get the discount.

The deadline for the income tax return submission will end on Nov 30.
