ITR Filing Deadline: Here's how much fine you will have to pay for missing tax return due date
February, 23rd 2021

The deadline to file income tax returns (ITR) was extended by the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) from December 31, 2020, to January 10, 2020, owning to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The central government, however, has now refused to entertain pleas to extend the deadlines further. For all those who have failed to file ITR, the central government will impose a minimum penalty of Rs 1,000.

How much fine will I have to pay if I miss the ITR filing deadline?

Late ITR filing attracts a penalty under Section 234F. Here it is noteworthy to mention that the penalty of filing late ITR will be decided on the earning of the individual and also on the window in which the returns have been filed.

As per the rules laid by the central government, if you have filed a return from July 31 to December 31, then you will have to pay a fine of Rs 5,000. However, those filing ITR after December 31 to March 31 will be fined Rs 10,000.
