Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has launched the software of electronic hearing of tax audit and assessment cases to facilitate the taxpayers. This has been done by enabling and functionalizing the e-Hearings module in the Iris.
The module enables online hearing both form the dedicated hearing rooms established in the field formations and from the places of the taxpayers. Such e-Hearings would be recorded and archived for further legal and administrative utilization.
In the first phase, the module has been launched and tested in LTO Islamabad, RTO Rawalpindi, RTO Faisalabad and RTO Peshawar wherein online e-Hearings through the dedicated e-Hearing Rooms and from the places of the taxpayers, have been enabled.
In the second phase, such e-Hearings are being enabled and operationalized for all the remaining field formations as well.
