Income Tax Return: Will govt extend ITR filing deadline amid glitches on portal?
The deadline for ITR filing for the financial year 2020-21 has been extended to 30 September 2021, keeping the Covid situation in view
Only a few weeks are left to file your income tax returns (ITR). So, if you have still not filed your ITR, do it now. It is always recommended to complete the task as soon as possible and not to wait until the last minute to avoid chances of any error. In July, the income tax department launched a new e-filing portal (www.incometax.gov.in) to speed up the processing of tax returns. But since its launch, users have complained about the glitches that they face while accessing the site.
Of this, income tax refunds of ₹16,373 crore have been issued in over 22.61 lakh cases and corporate tax refunds of ₹51,029 crore have been issued in over 1.37 lakh cases.
