As of June 24, 2021, 5.72 million individual income tax returns have been filed, with a ratio of 89.66% of total estimated individual income tax returns; and 922 thousand profit-seeking enterprise annual income tax returns have been filed, with a ratio of 95.83% of total estimated profit-seeking enterprise income tax returns.
