In a webinar session held with the petitioners, Federal Board of Revenue has announced to introduce the automated system of e-filing of appeals, which will be launched soon. FBR is in the process to automate the Commissioner IR (Appeals). The automation of the system will enable the taxpayers to e-file appeals against orders by income tax authorities on the Iris Web Portal and will also facilitate the Commissioner IR Appeals to efficiently dispose off the appeals using Iris Portal. It will also minimize the physical contact with the taxpayer, facilitate filing of appeal, reduce the cost of filing appeal and will ensure efficient service delivery with transparency. The taxpayer will be able to file appeals, application for condonation, rectification, stay and additional grounds from the comfort of its office.
