A two-day ‘Armed Forces Income Tax Fair 2019’ began on Tuesday at Senakunja in Dhaka Cantonment aiming to build a better tax revenue culture.  

In the inauguration of the income tax fair under the joint management of the Armed Forces Division and Tax Zone-9 Dhaka, Md Mosharraf Hossain Bhuiyan, chairman of NBR and Senior Secretary of the Internal Resources Division, was present as the chief guest.  

Rear Admiral M Lokmanur Rahman, Assistant Chief of Naval Staff (Logistics) was present as a special guest.

The payment of income tax has special significance. At present, non-commissioned officers also get good wages, said Md Mosharraf Hossain Bhuiyan urging the authorities to encourage them to pay income tax as well.

This fair is for the members of the Armed Forces to pay taxes without hassle, he also said.
