Attitude of CBDT Not Extending ITR Due Date is Not Appreciable: Gujarat HC

A writ application has been filed by the Southern Gujarat Income Tax Bar Association, Surat seeking relief of Tax Audit due date extension, Non Levy of interest u/s 234A, allowing filing of Tax Audit Report [TAR] and Income Tax Return [ITR] in physical form.

In this matter during the court proceeding, there was a discussion on the possibility of filing Tax Audit Report [TAR] & Income Tax return [ITR] physically.

Gujarat Highcourt Today Said While Hearing the Petition:

“Ask the highest authorities to file an affidavit that if any problem crop up, then they shall be immediately attended, and if such problems are not attended, then the officer shall be personally responsible for the same. If CBDT is to adopt a very obstinate attitude, which we don’t appreciate, they should keep in mind the problems being faced by the assessees There is no good reason for the CBDT to become happy because 35% of the Assessees have been able to upload their audit reports and ITRs and 65% are yet to file the same.”

The court further said that:

“Assessees should not coming begging before you (CBDT) that please help us… please help us. If there is a genuine problem, the CBDT is expected to take care of the problem.”

Mr. Justice J. B. PARDIWALA and Justice NISHA M. THAKORE direct the assessee to file TAR / ITR in the physical form to the jurisdictional authority in case the glitch is not been resolved with in new time limits.

    Good Judgement by the Gujarat High Court. The tax consultants and CAs are suffering very much to comply with income tax procedures due to corona pandemic situation, Income tax website glitches and lack of friendly approach by Income tax authorities. Our real hard work of tax consultants has not been realised by Income tax authority as well as political parties.
