ITR deadline: Income tax return e-filing date extended

Aug 30, 2021 23:05 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The deadline for filing Income Tax Returns (ITR) has been extended beyond September 30 as the glitches on the Infosys run e-filing portal continues.

In a big relief to taxpayers, the Finance Ministry on Sunday extended the deadlines for e-filing of various forms that come under the Income-Tax Act, 1961 after taxpayers reported difficulties in filing these online.

The government had previously extended the deadlines for filing income tax returns (ITR) earlier this year so as to give taxpayers some form of relief amidst the ongoing pandemic.
