Procedure for Online Payment of Taxes

Step 1: Creating PSID from FBR's Website

1. In order to pay your tax dues, the person has to log into FBR’s efile system by using the same credentials you used to log into Iris. After logging, access the e-Payments tab.

On the next page, a payment slip ID (PSID) will be created by: 
  • Selecting the relevant Tax Year
  • Typing the Tax amount due
  • Selecting the mode of payment (select ADC to pay online)
3. This will create your e-Payment slip. 
4. Click the print button to download the PSID. You can deposit the tax amount by using PSID online or by physically visiting your bank branch.
5. Note down the PSID number on completion of payment for further processing.

Step 2: Online Payment of Taxes through Internet Banking or ATM
