Karachi: According to recent reports, the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has decided not to impose a penalty on late filers across the board owing to technical and non-technical hurdles in the filing of returns.

The tax official informed the KTBA the FBR is taking strict action against non-filers and will initiate prosecution against non-compliant taxpayers.
