Warning: Beware of fake deadline extension messages appearing on social media
Taxpayers are requested to be aware of fake income tax return (ITR) extension notices appearing on social media.
Please note that the deadline for filing ITR for the financial year 2021-2022 (AY 2022-2023) for non-audit case is 31 July 2022. Income Tax Department reported on Saturday that approx. 26 lakh were filed before 4 pm and 3.97 lakh between 5 pm and 6 pm and 4.48 lakh between 6 am and 7 pm.
A lot of anger was shown on social media to extend Deadline of ITR returns for the financial year 2021-2022 and various representations were also made to the Hon’ble Finance Minister.
But Union Revenue Minister Tarun Bajaj has made it clear that the government has no plans to extend the deadline. “So far, there are no thoughts on extending the deadline for submission,” Mr Bajaj wrote on his Twitter.
Because the Government does not plan to extend the terms. To prevent any fines, penaltiesand legal implications, taxpayers should e-file their ITR for FY 2021-22 before the deadline.
