DUE DATE FOR FILING OF TAX RETURN EXTENDED TO AUGUST 5, 2013
As a Measure of Taxpayers Convenience, Last Date of Filing of Returns Extended to 5th August, 2013
There is an unprecedented surge in number of returns being e-filed during this year. 92.03 lakh returns have been e-filed up to 30th July, 2013 which is 46.8 % higher than the returns e-filed during the corresponding period of the last fiscal year.
Due to large number of taxpayers accessing e-filing website on due date of filing, some cases of taxpayers not being able to access the e-filing portal have been reported. These problems are primarily due to network constrains of the local internet service providers (ISPs).
However, as a measure of taxpayers convenience, it has been decided to extend the due date of filing of returns from 31st July, 2013 to 5th August, 2013.
