Reasons for extending ITR filing date: ITR filing date extended:

Taxpayer News: The government has extended the deadline for filing income tax returns to December 31, 2021. Earlier, the last date for filing income tax returns was September 30, 2021, but the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has decided to give taxpayers an extra three months. That is, you can file an income tax return for 2020-21 by 31 December 2021 without any penalty. In the end, why did the government have to take this decision?

Problems in the ITR Filing Portal

Filing ITR-

The Income Tax Department had launched a new ITR filing portal in June. It is made by Infosys, the second largest IT company in the country. But there were constant problems that made it difficult for taxpayers to complete the ITR filing process. Seeing the plight of taxpayers, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had called on Infosys CEO Salil Parekh to rectify the flaws in the new portal by September 15.

Corona crisis

The Kovid-19 epidemic has made it difficult for taxpayers to file ITRs. Due to the second wave of corona, the deadline for filing income tax returns was extended by 2 months to 30 September 2021. Generally, the income tax return for the previous financial year has to be filed by 31st July every year. But the corona has pushed it forward.

The process takes months

The finance ministry had decided to expedite the IT refund in view of the problems faced by the taxpayers during the Corona period. Under this, the IT refund was being issued within a week. But this time the ITR process is taking a long time. One taxpayer said he filed the ITR on July 30 and also did an online verification two days later. But his assessment order was issued on 9 September. Similarly, another taxpayer said that he had filed ITR of 4 members of his family in the first week of August but the assessment order has not been prepared yet.
