FBR directed to issue income tax exemption certificates against gratuity and provident funds

On Saturday, officials said the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) had directed for issuance of Income Tax Exemption Certificate to Provident / Gratuity Funds after Inland Revenue offices had verified genuine applications for taxpayer convenience.

Inland Revenue service sources said that the FBR has issued a directive in response to taxpayers’ complaints that tax offices are refusing to grant income tax exemptions against gratuity and provident funds. According to officials, the FBR is deeply concerned about the treatment of exemption certificate applications by some field formations under section 159/150/151 of the Income Tax Ordinance 2001.

The FBR said that the taxpayers had pointed out the exemption given to the funds before the tax year 2013, due to which the tax offices were not allowing their applications. In addition, the tax authorities asked taxpayers to submit fresh applications for approval that the fact of their approval was not available / clear in the FBR’s IRIS system.
