From now on, taxpayers can pay their income tax through bKash from anywhere, anytime. Customers can avail the opportunity by using bKash payment gateway from the e-payment gateway of National Board of Revenue (NBR). There will also be an NBR logo in the suggestion box of bKash app, which will redirect customers to the payment gateway if they tap on it.
The service is available at the Income Tax Fair organized by NBR, from 14th to 20th November 2019 across the country. After the fair, the service will remain accessible to all the taxpayers.
Customers, both registered and unregistered to online tax payment, can easily pay income tax by following few steps. Registered customers need to visit www.nbrepayment.gov.bd, tap on “Sign in” option and insert the customer ID and password. By clicking on “Tax” under “Pay Income Tax” option and providing TIN number on the next page, there will be “Verify TIN” option. After verification, customer needs to fill up necessary information and click on “Submit” button. After submitting, users will land in “Payment Method” page. From there, they need to select bKash from Mobile Payment option and insert bKash account and PIN number to complete the process. With completion of the process, customers will get confirmation message. However, those who don’t have any ID and password can also pay income tax by selecting “Unregistered” in the beginning and following subsequent procedure.
For tax payment through bKash, 1.1% charge will be applied on the customers.
