Respected Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman ji
Honorable Finance Minister,
Ministry of Finance,
Government of India,
With reference to above it is respectfully submitted on behalf of tax payers of the country that due to ongoing Covid-19 pandemic it is still not possible for the tax payers to comply in short Gap of the due date under the Direct tax, specially the due dates for GST annual returns and audit for the Financial year 2019-20, As the due date of Income tax return for Tax payers, who are partner or proprietor in Audited firm was 15th feb 2021, for the Financial year 2019-20.
The main reason is that due to the corona effect the tax payers are not able to visit their Tax professionals to complete these procedural formalities and further at some places they are not able to collect the required documents and information for compliance of these dates. Even they are not able to reply the routine notices issued by various departments.
Hope your good self will understand the problems of common tax payers and extend due date and compliance date to 31st March 2021.
