CBDT urged to extend I-T returns filing date to Nov 30
September, 25th 2014
The Gujarat High Court has directed the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) to extend the due date for filing of income-tax returns to November 30, the All India Federation of Tax Practitioners has said.
CBDT earlier had extended the due date for filing of tax audit report for corporate tax payers to November 30. However, it had not extended the due date for filing of the income-tax returns. “Many taxpayers were facing difficulty in filing of I-T returns without filing the tax audit reports” thefFederation said in a statement.
In view of this, the All Gujarat Federation of Tax Consultant had filed a writ petition in the Gujarat High Court contending for extension of the due date for filing of I-T returns to November 30.
