Vivad se Vishwas is a direct tax scheme for settling tax disputes between assessee’s and the income tax department. The extension of the deadline has come as a relief for those individuals who want to settle their tax disputes.
 
The Government on May 13, 2020, announced that is has extended the deadline for tax settlement scheme Vivad se Vishwas Scheme from earlier 30 June 2020 to 31 December 2020. Now the payment under Vivad se Vishwas Scheme can be made 31 December 2020 without interest & late fees.
 
This is the second time the deadline for the scheme has been extended. Earlier, Finance Minister as part of first relief package had extended the deadline from March 31, 2020 to June 30, 2020.
 
This latest extension will provide relief to those who had opted for the scheme but could not pay their installment on time due to the pandemic situation of Covid-19. Now they can make payment without paying additional 10% penalty & interest.
 
This Extension will also give an opportunity to those who are yet to decide whether they should opt for the scheme or not.
