July 31 was the last day for filing ITR for the 2021-22 fiscal by salaried individuals.

ITR filing went up till midnight, after which the tax-return filers will have to pay a late fee for delayed filing. Till July 30, more than 5.1 crore tax returns were filed.

Over the last one month, the I-T department has been nudging the taxpayers to file their ITRs for the 2021-22 fiscal to avoid the levy of the late fee.

Late fee charges

According to tax laws, a late fee of Rs 5,000 would be payable by those with an annual income of over Rs 5 lakh, if they file their ITR by December 31 of the assessment year.

Individuals with an annual income of below Rs 5 lakh will be liable to pay a late fee of Rs 1,000 for delayed return filing. Besides, those who have outstanding unpaid tax will have to shell out an additional 1 per cent interest per month for delayed filing.

The late fee will not apply to those taxpayers whose income is below the taxable limit.
