ITR Filing Due date for FY 2020-21 Extended to 31st December 2021

ITR Filing Due date for FY 2020-21 Extended to 31st December 2021:

Central Board of Direct Taxes has an Extended Due date for Filing the ITR for AY 2021-22 from 30th September 2021 to 31st December 2021 by three months. Due to difficulties on the new income tax portal, which made it difficult for thousands of taxpayers to complete their ITR filing procedure, the deadline has been extended.

The government has extended the deadline for reporting ITRs for people whose accounts are not required to be audited for the second time this year. The ITR filing deadline was previously extended by two months, from July 31 to September 30, 2021, because to the second wave of the Covid-19.

Remember that the government has also extended the deadline for reporting late ITRs by one month, from December 31, 2021 to January 31, 2022. Unless the income tax department issues a notice, if the ITR is not filed by January 31, 2022, the individual would not be able to file the ITR for FY 2020-21. A late filing fee of Rs 5,000 would be charged, as well as penal interest at the rate of 1% per month on unpaid tax dues.

Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has decided to further extend the due dates for filing of Income Tax Returns and various reports of audit for the Assessment Year 2021-22. The details are as under:
