I am directed to enclosed herewith from Government of the Punjab Services and General Administration Department (Regulation Wing) Deputy Secretary Rules S&GAD vide Letter No. SOR-IV(S&GAD) 11-1/2019 dated Lahore 16 July 2019 in which the said Department intimated regarding Section 114 of Income Tax Ordinance 2011 requires Govt. Employees earning taxable income to file their income Tax Returns. The compliance with this provision of law is essential to ensure documentation of economy. However , contrary to this requirement , it has come to notice of Government of the Punjab that large number of employees are not filling their income Tax Returns. They are under the impression that there is at source deduction of income tax on their salaries , hence filling of returns is not called for. This is a misconception , which is against the above provision of Law. Foregoing in view , all the officers / officials working under Government of the Punjab are directed to fulfill their legal obligation of filling returns of their taxable income for the year 2018. The income Tax return for the year 2018 may be filed upto 02-08-2019, i.e. the new deadline.
