The good news is according to the F.B.R. official website (https::\\, the return for tax year 2016 has been approved and available for submission. However, for the last couple of days neither the official website of FBR inor the IRIS website IRIS ( through which the returns are to be submitted online have been available.

There is not much change in the tax return for tax year 2016 compared to the return for tax year 2015. However, last year too people faced tremendous link problems while submitting returns for tax year 2015 and the date had to be extended many a times. We pray that FBR this year removes the deficiencies in the return process and ensures the smooth running of its online system for filing returns.

Filing Income Tax Returns Online in Pakistan

This article is an humble attempt to guide the taxpayers who intend to file their income tax returns on their own without help of any tax lawyer of practitioner.

Earlier, salaried individuals were not required to submit their income tax return if their only source of income was salary and their income was below Rs.500,000. However, with effect from tax year 2013 every employee earning taxable income is required to submit his income tax return.

I think the salaried individuals who do not submit their returns make a blunder. First, they expose themselves for penal action on account of non-submission of return and secondly in majority of cases of salaried persons the tax deducted is more than their actual tax liability. In case such person submit returns they can claim the excess deduction as refund.

It is quite easy to pay income tax in Pakistan. If your income is more than Rs.33,500 per month, your employer is required to deduct taxes from your paycheck. Under section 149 of the Income Tax Ordinance of 201, your employer is also required to file a statement of all taxes they withhold. This has not always been the case.

Every salaried employee with a taxable income of Rs.400,000 is required to electronically file (e-file) an income tax return using the FBR'Sonline system known as IRIS.

In addition to an income tax return, every person who is required to file income tax return for tax year 2015 has also to file wealth statement. Wealth statement is mandatory for filing of income tax return. Without wealth statement you will not be able to submit your income tax return.

Wealth statements contain details of a person's assets and liabilities. That is to say, you have to mention in detail your properties, plots, houses, and vehicles in your name as well as the detail of movable and immovable properties that are in the name of your dependents e.g. your wife and children. Taxpayers are also required to give details of personal expenses e.g. rent of house paid, Travelling, electricity, education and other personal household expenses. Personal expenses is the part and parcel of your wealth statement.

How to Prepare a Wealth Statement Online

Taxpayers are required to file wealth statement and to reconcile their wealth with the declared in the previous year's wealth statement. Usually, government employees are also required to file Declaration of Assets and liabilities with their respective departments. So, you can pick the figure from declaration of assets. However, reconciling the wealth is little bit tricky.

In the Wealth statement you are required to mention the complete address of your house, plot or properties etc. your bank balance as on 30.06.2015. While mentioning the value of assets please mention the cost of the asset that is borne by you to acquire the same. For example, you purchased a plot for Rs.100,000 including incidental charges of registry and payment of commission etc. and present value of the said plot is Rs.500,000. You have to mention the value of plot at Rs.100,000 and not Rs.500,000. Similarly, you purchased a vehicle for a consideration of Rs.500,000 four years back and now its market value is around Rs.300,0000. You have to mention the value of the same at Rs.500,0000 and not Rs.300,000. Regarding loans you have to mention the position of loans as on 30.06.2014 or 30.6.2015 (for tax years 2014 and 2015 respectively). Suppose you have obtained house building loan of Rs.100,000 three years back and after payment of instalments the current position of loan is Rs.65000. You have to mention your liability at Rs.65000 and not Rs.100,000.

So far as the reconiliation of wealth is concerned there is a basic technique that taxpayers should use, which can best be explained through the following example

To begin you will need these figures (followed by example amounts):

  1. Wealth for the year: Rs.100
  2. Wealth for the previous year: Rs.90
  3. Increase in wealth: Rs.10 (A)

Sources of Income

  1. Salary income: 50
  2. Rental income: 10
  3. Business income: 20
  4. Foreign remittances: 10

Total: 90 (B)

Now from that amount take away the total calculated from this list of figures:

  1. Personal expenditure: 50
  2. Marriage of son: 20
  3. Taxes paid: 10

Total expenses: 80

Difference 10 (C)

Note that A and C should be equal in all circumstances.

Another Example of Wealth Statement Procedures

Let’s understand this through another example:

  1. Wealth for the year: Rs.100
  2. Wealth for the previous year: Rs.110
  3. Decrease in wealth: (Rs.10) (A)

Sources of Income

  1. Salary income 100 (B)

Now we will subtract the total from the following:

  1. Personal expenditure: 50
  2. Education of children: 40
  3. Taxes paid: 20

Total expenses: 110

Difference between B and C: 10

If a person has other sources of income other than their salary, they are required to file a return for that income as well.

In all salary income cases, taxpayers are required to file their return through the online Iris portal.

Can you help me in some information regarding the AOP Tax return.

i am providing a construction material to a government organization and they deduct 17% GST + 4.5% Income Tax and 2 % transportation Tax on all my payments & bills. Where as i do not charge any GST from the whole sale supplier. I have following questions.

1. When i monthly file the Sales Tax, i file the Sales tax as Null, ( As i do not charged the GST from the whole sale supplier)? Is it correct.

2. Once i file my tax return for my AOP, which other taxes i need to pay, as government organization is already deducted 17% GST and 4.5% Income Tax and 2 % trasnportation Tax.

3. Suppose in the end of the complete fiscal year we have income of 6 lac rupees from this AOP business, and as we are three partners the revenue is divided as 2 lac to each partner, and this we will show in our personal income tax retrun (Income from the AOP) any other thing or tax that we need to pay on it?

I hope your detailed answer on this. Thanks

Dear Mr. Muhammad Yousaf,

You have to declare the property in your name in the wealth statement. Definitely the property is purchased by you out of your foreign income and it can be proved, in case the Departments asks you to explain.

In case you purchase the property from a society on installment, you have to show advances paid against the said property till the closing date which for tax year 2016 is 30.06.2016 and for tax year 2015 was 30.06.2015.

In case spouse is dependent on you, you can show the asset owned by your spouse in the column "Asset in any Other's name".

Kashif 13 months ago

I have emailed you, also asking here. How to fill the following columns:

-Private Vehicle Tax u/s 234

-Electricity Bill of Domestic Consumer u/s 235A

-Telephone Bill u/s 236(1)(a)

-Cellphone Bill u/s 236(1)(a)

-Prepaid Telephone Card u/s 236(1)(b)

Let me explain:

-Private Vehicle Tax u/s 234

--I am a car owner and have paid annual tax on my vehicle, so should I add that tax in this column? If yes, am I supposed to fill only the amount of withholding tax as mentioned on the challan form or the TOTAL amount (including moto vehicle tax etc)?

-Electricity Bill of Domestic Consumer u/s 235A

-- What about this? Everyone has an electric connection at his home.

-Telephone Bill u/s 236(1)(a)


-Cellphone Bill u/s 236(1)(a)

-Prepaid Telephone Card u/s 236(1)(b)

--What's the difference between these two? And as I own 2 x SIMs on my name, should I get my Tax Certificates from cell companies and fill in the tax paid by me on pre-paid mobile phone cards? If yes, will the tax amount be only for the FY-2014/15 as I am filing the return for year 2015.

Lastly, am I supposed to attach any scanned documents as proof with the return to show that I have paid this tax?

Mr. Imran

All taxpayers who are required to file return of income are also required to file wealth statement. Income Tax Return can only be filed if first taxpayer submits his income tax return. In case you are facing problems in submitting the wealth statement you can contact me via email or via phone 03244083282. We charge very negligible fee for services which depends on case to case.

For the first time filers to become Active filer, is it enough to file tax return for 2015 along with Wealth Statement or previous year (2014) should also be filed along with Wealth Statement?

SkyLark 14 months ago

Dear Tayyab,

As per my knowledge, the following might help you.

There are two cells which are named as under:

1) Net Assets for Current Year 2015 code 703001

2) Net assets for Previous Year 2014 code 703002

As per the given detail, your wealth should be entered Rs. 2,000,000 for 2014, which you can enter by clicking on cell.

And for 2015 the amount will be come(automatically) from Personal Assets/Liabilities form, which ofcourse should be Rs. 2,250,000.oo.

Form for Personal Assets/Liabilities should be filled in such a way the total should be Rs. 2,250,000.

Hopefully this would help to sort out your problem.

Enter that amount in the "Net assets previous year" in reconciliation sheet.

Tayyab 14 months ago

Dear FBRuser,

Thanks for your reply, but the issue remains unresolved, The amount cannot reconciled due to difference. Please see the following example for better understanding;

Till 2014 Wealth was Rs. 2,000,000 (Which was not filed ever)

In 2015 Salary Recieved Rs. 1,000,000

Tax Deducted Rs. 50,000

Other Expenses (including all) Rs. 700,000

Here Wealth for 2015 is Rs. 250,000 (i.e. Salary - Tax - Expenses)

Now Total Wealth becomes Rs. 2,250,000/- and difference in reconciliation arises by Rs. 2,000,000.

The question is where I enter the Rs. 2,000,000/- that resolve the unrecociled amount.

Dear Firdousi, Please share your expert opinion on the following.

Inward remittance in Foreign currency accounts as in which year they should be reported. For example, a non-resident pakistani opens a foreign currency account in Pakistan and feeds it through foreign remittances. Later after some years he returns back and gets it en-cashed through bank having direct debit from Foreign Currency account and credit to his/her Pak rupee account. Obviously there would be gain due to exchange rate.

1- So the question is, in which year the remittances (FCY) are to be reported, simply because people keep Foreign Currency account for hedging only.

2- How to show exchange rate difference (gain / loss) in ITR/ Wealth statement while not physically converted foreign currency into pak rupee.

So June-14 salary received on 1 July-15 will be included in IT return but salary of June-15 will not be included simply because you did not receive till 30-June-2015.

I think, you are mixing up remittances and gain on foreign remittances. If you receive remittances from abroad through proper banking channel, usually relatives of most Pakistanis sent, they have to be shown in the year they were received by you and they are exempt from tax.

Hi Firdous:

Had emailed you as well and awaiting your response. After filing returns , the tax deducted from my salary by my employer is appearing under the head of Withholding Income Tax (Code 9201).

As suggested by you i tried to file return by clearing all the values under "Adjustable Tax" and "Final / Fixed / Minimum / Average / Relevant / Reduced Tax" but it was continuously giving me message that i need to pay the tax so was left with no choice but to incorporate the value under the tab of Salary of Corporate Sector Employees u/s 149 in the form Adjustable Tax.

The return has been filed but i m getting the feeling that withholding income tax should be Nil. Could you please tell me how to fix this?

Mr. Zubar.

You are right. The value should be shown exactly in the manner you provided above. Amount of provident fund should be the amount the PF made by you and your employer profit

Zubair 14 months ago

1) Please guide the what balance of provident fund to be stated in the Assets Column as Assets:

a) PF Contribution made by employee only or PF Contribution made by employee + the Conribution made by employer + Profit applied thereon.

2) Please also guide on the matter that if a person is having a Vehicle say Motor Bike as an asset as per his Asset Statement on 30-06-2014 for Rs.40,000/- and in the month of November 2014 he sold the same for Rs.45,000/- how this amount would be reported in the wealth statement if the said amount of Rs.45,000/- is gifted by the person to his son?

Should it first be deleted from this year's wealth statement and the proceeds amount to be written in the Reconciliation of Net Assets as follows:

Inflows Column - Gain on Sale of Assets Rs.5,000/-

Inflows Column - Others = Rs.40,000/- (Cost Price)

Outflows Column - Gift = Rs.45,000/-

Assets Transferred / Sold / Gifted / Donated during the year = Rs.45,000/-

Please provide your valuable guidance on the above queries and oblige.

Ahsan 14 months ago

If I see my last year returns, there is a head (#64020000, Salary of employee, u/s 149) under adjustable tax where my tax deduction is entered. However in the current year tax returns, this head is not available under adjustable tax tab. If I enter it under any other head e.g. 64020004, Salary of other employee, u/s 149) it gets adjusted but under with holding tax. This is probably the reason why tax is not getting deducted and thud not allowing to submit the returns. Any help?

It is not unusual. Probably, your company has deducted less than your actual tax liability. There are many other heads through which the government collects taxes which a lay man may not know. So even you may not require to pay further tax if you acquire the service of a professional.

Mr. Sheraz.

I think, you have made a mistake. Obviously, you mentioned the amount in the exempt column or the tax deducted is mentioned in the form "final/fix/minimum etc.", which should have been mentioned in "Adjustable Tax". As described by you, the right has not rightly been filled in but the exact conclusion could only be made after seeing what you have done.

Today I completed my online return 114(1) for year 2014-15 and I clicked to submit a window popped up telling me " Code 9203, amount ----- to be paid before submission". As my Tax has been already deducted and sumbitted through my company. I am unable to file my return. Please help me in this regard.

Sheraz 14 months ago

I am a Salaried Individual. After filling the return, I am getting my tax amount under 2nd column labeled as (Amount Exempt from Tax/Subject to Fixed/ Final Tax) of Withholding Income Tax. Is that OKay or i am doing any mistake?

I have filled Salary Amount and Tax amount under Adjustable Tax and Computation sheet shows Withholding Income Tax. I can remember it was not apearing last year in Iris. Can somebody guide me with this, Withholding Income Tax?

The above items should appear in the wealth statment u/s 116(2). Please mention loans in the liabilities portion, which will be automatically reduced from your net wealth. Please reduce the installments paid upto 30.06.2015 from the said loans. Please mention the plot particulars in the relevant portion of immovable properties. Only the installments paid upto 30.06.2015 against the plot mentioned be mentioned in respect of plot acquired on installments.

Thanks SkyLark. You have been most helpful.

FBR changes the tax filing forms/procedures every year causing a host of problems for senior citizens etc. The video guide prepared last year by FBR has not been updated to show how to file the Statement of Assets/Liabilites/Expenses.

Thanks once again for your prompt response.

SkyLark 15 months ago

Dear Farooq & Ibrahim ,

For Wealth Statement you have to go to main screen and the click on Declaration and there, there is form with a caption below:

"116(2) (Statement of Assets / Liabilities filed voluntarily"

then select period then the same procedure you already did with IT Return.

Regards, SL

Ibraheem 15 months ago

I have the exact same problem as listed by Mr. Farooq.

When I click on Personal Expenses nothing comes up whereas there is supposed to be Statement of Assets/Liabilities to be filled.

Last year there was no problem.

Help from an IRIS expert would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Farooq Nadeem 15 months ago

I have almost completed my tax return for 2015. When I click on Personal Assets/Liabilities/Receipts/Expenses the drop down menu only shows Personal Expenses.On clicking on Personal Expenses nothing happens. Also Personal Assets/Liabilites and Reconciliation of Net Assets are missing.

How do I file the personal expenses, wealth statement etc? Is this a temporary problem?

For 2014 I had no problem in e-filing the tax return.

AHSAN 15 months ago

no use of it, I wanted to know how a person can fill the income tax return on iris, as it is very complicated and not friendly at all and other things is that what I will show to my personal expenses as it is not opening......very slow and complicated, it is much better e-fbr than iris.

How to add an a plot in wealth statement, which is on installment? can u give example on it?

javeed 16 months ago

very discouraging. It looks so complicated that normal person cannot accomplish the task. One then has to higher the services of professional and pay some fee to him to escape the tyranny of tax people. This concern of a salaried person who work hard to earn their livelihood.

Dear Firdous

Thank you very much for such an elaborate information. I have a simple question. My office is deducting my tax since 2004 from my pay. But I have never filled this IT return. If I want to start now, what procedure should I adopt. Should I start e-filling from 2004 or I need to get some special permission for previous years from FBR. I already have NTN no and e-enrollment. Only issue is how to start about the previous ones????

waiting for your response and guidance


Zed 16 months ago

I want to file my tax returns but have few negative thoughts in mind which i want to clear before going ahead with procedure. Can you guys share with us your experiences with FBR. File tax returns mean recording all your financial positions with FBR so do you think it may create any issue for us in future? 17 months ago

Can you tell me where to put the income tax deducted by the employee in online form?

firdousi0 2 years ago from Pakistan Author

You are right. Expenses and income should not be equal in every case. Suppose you earn Rs.100 and spent out Rs.80. Rs.20 would be your saving which would be included in your net assets in the shape of cash etc.

There is no bar in filing in your previous returns. You may obtain your login password etc and submit the returns online.

Is this info valid in this tax filing year

1. All salaried to fill-up e-fbr

2. All over 1 million income per yearto fill-up wealth statement

Awais 2 years ago

Information mentioned is very useful. In fact still the bad thing is that FBR has made IT and ST Return and submission forms very complicated and difficult which may not be understandable for a normal person , with this type of perception no one wants to submit his income, sales and wealth statement. And normally the tax consultant demand a huge amount to guide / file your tax returns. Lets hope that everyone feels the responisblity to pay their tax's as helping to build Pakistan more bright in future.
