No change in Income Tax filing deadline, clarifies tax department

    NEW DELHI: The Income Tax (I-T) department on Friday issued a clarification regarding an order circulating on social media about the extension of income tax return (ITR) filing deadline. 

    The circular stated that the tax department had extended the deadline for filing ITR from August 31, 2019, to September 30, 2019, as taxpayers are facing difficulties in filing their income tax returns on time due to various reasons including extensions of due date for issue of Form 16 for the assessment year 2019-20.

    However, the I-T department clarified that the order is not genuine and August 31 is the last day for filing tax returns.

    “It has come to the notice of CBDT that an order is being circulated on social media pertaining to extension of due dt for filing of IT Returns. It is categorically stated that the said order is not genuine.Taxpayers are advised to file Returns within extended due dt of 31.08.2019,” I-T department said.

    The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) had extended the deadline for filing ITR for the financial year 2018-19 from July 31, 2019 to August 31, 2019 last month. It is unlikely that the date will be extended further.
