FBR to Upgrade IRIS System

Date: 10-09-2022
Building further on its ongoing drive for digitalization, the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) is all set to upgrade its key IRIS system in order to improve its operation, enhance its security, and add a new Graphic User Interface (GUI). 
Changes in the underlying architecture of the system will greatly enhance its speed and functions, especially in the coming return filing season. The new graphical interface is more intuitive and functional, and will facilitate taxpayers in filing their returns. This upgradation will also augment the security of the system through certain digital interventions.
It is to inform that during this upgradation process, the services of IRIS System will be temporarily unavailable from 10 PM on 6th August to 10 AM on 7th August 2022. Therefore, the inconvenience is regretted.
