CA Avinash Gupta and Tax Research Foundation, Delhi has filed a Writ petition in Delhi High Court on 10.09.2015, seeking Extension of due date of Tax Audit Report required to be filed Under Section 44AB of the Income Tax Act,1961 for Assessment Year 2015-16.

It is to be noted that last year too many Chartered Accountants & Tax Association has filed writ petition in various High Courts across India and got the due date extended.

This Year CBDT has already rejected any possibility of Due date extension vide its Press Release dated 09th September 2015 which has drawn several criticism from those Associated with Tax Audit Related work.

In the coming Various Tax association from Other parts of Countries and Chartered accountants are also likely to move to other High Courts to get the Tax Audit and Return Filing date extended.

We are attaching herewith Draft of Writ Filed in Delhi High Court and also reproducing below the Grounds on which the writ been filed for the benefit of our readers –

GROUNDS OF APPEAL

A. Because the decision of the Respondent No.1 and 2 vide its Press Release Dated 09.09.2015 by virtue of which, the Respondents has denied to extend the date for filing of returns due by 30.09.2015 for Assessment Year 2015-2016 for certain categories of Assesses including Companies, and Firms and, Individuals Engaged in Proprietary Business/Profession etc., whose Accounts are required to be Audited in terms of section 44AB of the Income Tax Act 1961, is unreasonable, unjust, arbitrary, illegal and unconstitutional and that the same is inter-alia, in violation and contravention to Article 14, and Article 19 (1) (g) of the Constitution of India, as the same is infringing the fundamental rights of equality, trade and profession which is guaranteed under the Constitution of India.

B. Because the Respondent No.1 and 2 ought to have extended the date of filing of Returns due by 30th September for Assessment Year 2015-2016 for Categories of Assesses Including Companies, and Firms and, Individuals Engaged in Proprietary Business /Profession etc., whose Accounts are required to be Audited u/s 44AB of The Income Tax Act, 1961 from 30.09.2015 to 31.12.2015, on the account of belated notification of the Income Tax Form with the exorbitant delay.

C. Because the decision of the Respondent No.1 and 2 as mentioned in the said Press Release is inter-alia unreasonable, arbitrary, unjustified and unconstitutional, as the same is causing grave prejudice and harassment, not only to the concerned Tax Payers but also for the Chartered Accountants community at large, who are responsible for conducting the tax audit and further to file the same alongwith the Income Tax Return in accordance with Law, in as much as in the given facts and circumstances the time left to make compliance of Section 44 AB of Income Tax Act has been reduced, as the Respondents much after 01.04.2015, has belatedly notified the Income Tax Forms for respective categories of Tax Payers.

D. Because the Tax Payer as well as the Respondents expect from the Chartered Accountant a 100% compliance with zero tolerance while make compliances under the Income Tax Act, however it is not possible to justify the role to the full extent in just 23 days, as the Income Tax Return for the Assesses/Tax Payers not liable for Audit, were being filed till 07.09.2015, in terms of the period of filing ITR being extended by the Respondents on account of delay in notification of ITR Forms.

E. Because the most affected category of Tax Payers has been the Assesses including Companies, and Firms and, Individuals Engaged in Proprietary Business/Profession etc., whose Accounts are required to be Audited in terms of the Income Tax Act 1961 and who suffered a delay in notification of forms and consequent reduction of time wherein the delay in notifying the forms by the Respondents has reduced the time of filing Income Tax Return by 122 to 128 days respectively.

F. Because the Respondent No.1 and 2 has acted against the constitutional Right of Equality under Article 14 of the Constitution inter-alia in as much as the Respondents suo-motu has though given a benefit of extension of time to the Assesses/Tax Payers not liable for Audit till 07.09.2015 (though as per law the last date is 31.07.2015). However, similar such benefit has not been given to Assesses/Tax Payers liable for Audit u/s 44AB.

G. Because inter-alia due to the unjust prejudice and harassment being caused on account of the aforesaid reduction in time, various representations were filed before the Respondents inter-alia by Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. However, the Respondents without any application of mind and in highly unjust, arbitrary and unconstitutional manner did not consider the said representations and denied to extend the time for filing the date of Income Tax Return from 30.09.2015 to any further date vide its said Press Release Dated 09.09.2015.

H. Because as per Section 139 (1) of the Income Tax Act,1961, the Income Tax Return of every financial year ending on 31st March, should be filed in the assessment year by following dates of different categories of Tax Payers:

Sr. No. Category of Assesse Date of filing ITR Time available for filing ITR
1. Assesses not liable for Audit under Income Tax Act or any other Act. 31st July 122 days
2. Assesses liable for Audit under Income Tax Act or any other Act (except mentioned in Serial No.3) 30th September 183 days
3. Assesses covered under transfer pricing regulations 30th November 244   days

That accordingly, as per law, the respective Forms under which the respective categories of Tax Payers are required to file their respective Income Tax Return, has to be duly made available to respective categories of Tax Payers on the very first day of the assessment year, so that every tax payer, duly know the manner/prescribed format in which the Income Tax Return is required to be filed and accordingly have sufficient time to further file the Income Tax Return in the prescribed format.

I. Because the Respondent No.1 and 2 despite knowing well the essence of time in filing Income Tax Returns, under the garb of alleged reforms and ease of doing business has deliberately failed to notify the prescribed income tax return forms for respective categories of Tax Payers.

J. Because the Respondent No.1 and 2 notified the Income Tax Return Forms for all types of Assesses (auditable and non-auditable) at a belated stage, on different dates being as under:

Sr. No. Forms for the Category of Assesse Date of Notification of Forms Date of enabling E-Filing Reduction in Time (Days)
1. ITR 1 & 4S 23.06.2015 23.06.2015    83
2. ITR 2 & 2A 23.06.2015 29.06.2015    89
3. ITR 3,4 & 7 29.07.2015 01.08.2015    122
4. ITR 5 29.07.2015 02.08.2015    123
5. ITR 6 29.07.2015 07.08.2015    128

It is submitted that on account of the said delay on the part of Respondents in notifying the said Forms, the Tax Payers of the respective categories has suffered a grave prejudice, as due to the same, the respective Forms were not available to the respective categories of Tax Payers, as on 01.04.2015. It is submitted that on 01.04.2015, the right of every tax payer, duly accrues to know the manner/prescribed format in which the Income Tax Return is required to be filed and the right to further file the Income Tax Return in the prescribed format, which ought to have been made available on 01.04.2015. That as is apparent from the aforesaid chart, due to the said belated notification of forms, the different categories of tax payers have suffered and prejudiced on account of reduction in time in preparing and filing the Income Tax Return.

K. Because while notifying the Income Tax Forms for Assesses not liable for Audit under Income Tax Act, the Respondents acknowledging the fact of reduction in time for filing ITR for 81 days, suo-motu extended the date of filing ITR for the said category initially by 31 days i.e 31.08.2015 and further extended the said date by another 7 days i.e 07.09.2015.

L. Because the Ministry of Corporate Affairs came out with various notifications/clarifications in the new Companies Act, 2013, which has direct implications on the filing of Income Tax Return and the Audit of the Companies under Income Tax Act, 1961. It is also pertinent to mention that the provisions of the said enactment are being made applicable for the first time, while preparing the Annual Accounts of the Corporate Entities.

Further, in this vague situation and circumstances, the most affected category of Tax Payers has been the Assesses including Companies, and Firms and, Individuals Engaged in Proprietary Business/Profession etc., whose Accounts are required to be Audited in terms of the Income Tax Act 1961 and who suffered a delay in notification of forms and consequent reduction of time wherein the delay in notifying the forms by the Respondents has reduced the time of filing Income Tax Return by 122 to 128 days respectively.

    This is very good sign for our India, that Government wants to make puntual to its citizens. But before it, they should also be puntual. ITR Forms should be available on 1st April every year. CBDT released all forms in last july to starts august. It is TANASHAHI.

    the due date could be extended if we put forward some problem of ‘Gujrat’ tax payers. Like always first Gujrat and then all others

  10. anjan bagchi says:

    CBDT PLEASE EXTEND THE TIME FOR FILING RETURN

  11. Nitin Bhave says:

    Due date must extend for 2 months Dig Sig bhi complicated ho Gaye hai sad ran assesse pareshan hai

  12. chandra says:

    always this has became childish attitude by cbdt. on the last date cbdt issues circular for extention. till that time all we have to suffer and later cbdt extends, why not to issue in advance so that all we ca’s can file reports freely without any tention.
    advcice to cbdt is to be friendly, and be approchable to public interest. and don’t play childish by extending due on the last date.. let cbdt pro give statement on current affairs daily.

  13. Dharam Vir says:

    Just see the kind of language used “it has been decided not to extend….”, is this democracy or dictatorship ? Never expected this insensitive attitude from Modiji’s govt. 70-80% of taxes are already paid in form of Advance Tax and TDS, don’t understand how much Govt will loose if date is extended by 15-30 days. The number of audit cases are increasing every year plus the ITRs were notified so late… The CBDT should realise that CAs and Tax Professionals are human beings and not machines.

  14. CvKrishna Kishore says:

    The Department Officials are treating the Tax Professionals and Chartered Accountants are a common lay man, we are facing lot of problems and burdens in filing the tax audit reports and returns the due date is in the earlier years is given up to 31st December of ever year, but subsequently they are reducing the due date, if the due date is extended up to 31.12.2015 it is more convenient to the professionals and also sufficient time to verify the financial statements and give fair reports, and also it is a clear fact non audit returns are also extended up to 07.09.2015, the professionals are busy up to 15.09.2015 for preparing the advance-tax calculations for next assessment year and also some persons are very busy up to 20.09.2015 for filling of VAT Returns e filing, I hope the Honourable High Court will consider the matter in our favour.

    • SUGUMARAVEL says:

      Is this the way the Government Authorities to behave? They should work for the common people and more particularly the Tax Payers. The Government Authorities think that they are the ultimate authorities, as the Government, especially the Finance Ministry is backing them up and due to that only they do not even consider the tax payers, CAs and other Professions involved in filing of Tax Returns. Every should work for the welfare of the common people that too the TAX PAYERS. The corrupted people are enjoying like anything and involve in scandals, the so called Government Servants / Authorities seems not working for the people instead they serve their political masters as they think they are the Supremo. What will happen if the due date for filing the tax return is extended for at least 15 days or so? As somebody mentioned it was extended for more that 2 months last year. Is it fair on the part of the Government to force the TAX PAYERS like any thing. Those who are not filing returns are not worries and the Government also does not take any action on Black Money. On the other hand the Govenrment squeeze the Tax Payers. So, appropirate action should be taken for the extention of due date for filing the Tax Audit cases.

      I also wonder, how the Writ Petition was filed instead of PIL?. Whos advised to file Writ instead of PIL? Eventhough, I appreaciate the effort for putting the matter to the Hon’ble Court and at the same time I humbly feel that one should have taken enough care before filing any case in a more vital cases like this.

  15. Niloy says:

    It seems CBDT is not going to extend the date under any circumstance…

  16. M KUMAR SWAMY says:

    Dear All, it seems only for ITR 5 & 6 and what about ITR 4. Any Guess.

    Lets Hope for the best 🙂

  18. Azhar and co., says:

    dear cbtd so much request from all over India still no response to extend the date. Please extend the date and co operate.

  19. CA Vineet Gupta says:

    Today the Income Tax site was not working at least upto 4.00 PM. We professionals should immediately file grievances on the portal to record such cases of “LAPSE IN SERVICE BY ITD SERVERS” to put pressure on CBDT

  20. sunil bhatia says:

    I think the only solution is that in case of delay in filing the tax audit report the penalty should be charged on daily basis subject to maximum penalty already prescribed in the Act. For e.g for first 7 days of delay penalty should be 1000 per day,8 to 14 days 2000 per day subject to maximum penalty prescribed in act

  21. RM.AYYAPPA PRABHU says:

    INCOME TAX E FILLING ALL FORMS ENABLE FOR EVERY YEAR APRIL FIST WEEK ,OUR SIDE FILLING DUE DATE , SO PLEASE DUE DATE EXTENED EVERY YEAR OCTOBER 31 ST

  22. S.S.Prasad says:

    Very Good step taken by everybody including trade bodies, various CA’s and Chartered accountant and Tax Professional Associations in Gujarat, New Delhi. Even the CA fraternity in Karnataka is deciding to file PIL/Write in the High court for extension of tax audit to 30/11/2015. In karnataka, power failures/outages are order of the day, tax audit due date should be extended to 30/11/2015. CBDT should extend this without waiting for any judgements/decisions. The Press release issued by CBDT on 09.09.2015 not extending due date is illogical, atrocious and highly arbitrary.

    God should save us from this ordeal of due dates galore every year.

  23. Dharam Vir says:

    It appears CBDT wants that CAs and tax professionals should stop their work and take part in 100 metres race where the finishing line is 30th September.

  24. H. K. CHHEDA says:

    Due Date to be Extended also on follwing Ground.

    The Central Govt. came with Amnesty Scheme for Black Money Disclosure in Foreign Country with Declaration of Foreign Assets & Foreign Bank A/cs. The due Date for the same also is 30.09.2015. If an Assessee files declaration on Last Day, then his Balance Sheet also gets changed for ITR 4 as well as for Wealth Tax Return. How, it is possible for his CA to do compilation in less than 24 hrs.?

  25. dharma says:

    Most cases the assesses have paid the tax as advance tax and TDS, even if there is a short fall in the above there is interest provisions. By extending time for filing return and audit report there will be no delay in revenue collection as major portion is already collected. Compare to our budget target revenue collection at the time filing return will be minimal only. The new companies act 2013 and frequent changes in companies act through various notification has resulted huge delay in finalising the accounts of the small and medium companies. small and medium business enterprises are not having adequate manpower for compliance related works. Mostly CAs guiding them from payment of Advance Tax to TDS regularly. We are the one who advice the people to come under tax net and pay the tax properly and live peace fully. But the people at the helm of affairs at the Govt. are in wrong presumption that we advice against revenue. This notion should be removed by our institute. The Govt. not even recognises us to attest the id proofs for digital sign. Govt should recognise our work and allow adequate time to us to carry out Tax Audit and to assesses to file return. Govt is in the wrong notion that each assesse has computer with Broad band connection and also expert in accounts and system knowledge. All tax utility are developed in this notion only which is virtually not reality. ICAI and Other business association to represent and explain the real situation to the Govt.

  26. M g k says:

    Good days (achhe din ) going on for CA fraternity.Why CBDT not considering practical issues of time and work for given time frame.

  27. KARIBASAIAH M METIKURKE MUTT says:

    Government makes frequent changes in ITR Forms 4 ,5, and others release in the month of august 2015 and enactments procedures and online computer systems.So assessee faces several complications arises in uploading the I T R A-Y 2015-16.
    I request to due date extension . now due date is 30-09-2015 is must be extend to 30-11-2015 for the benefit of assessee.

  28. RAVINDER says:

    Govt is making CAs do half the work of ITOs with no pay. ITOs get very good salary and pension. CAs get no salary or retirement benefits from Govt for helping in tax compliance and collection – even TRPs get a commission. All the CA gets is fee from clients for which he has to report all the mistakes made by clients in Form 3CD – each point in the Form is meant to screw the client. Based on this Form, the client gets to pay more tax and penalty and sometimes face prosecution also. If the CA misses out something with which the client can be penalised, the CA is also penalised with disciplinary action that can ruin his career. In the next year the CA is back asking the client for his books for tax audit and the fees. Is there a more thankless work in the world than that of Indian CAs.

    • HARIPRASAD G says:

      Ravinder,What you said is true .Ours is a dirty job.I feel ,it is better if deptt. ask us to conduct u/s 142 and then only we have real independence.By this we need not beg for either extension or clients to submit books of accounts well in time.I ,think client intentionally produce books of account during last week/s of Sept. OR
      2.IT act should be amended to submit unaudited financial statements by the end of 31st May ,so that we can only comment on his financial statements.And personally i feel option 1 is better as Appointing authority and Audit fee paying authority will be different.

  29. SHASHI says:

    Vishal Garg & Ors. Vs. Union of India & Anr. (Punjab & Haryana High Court) CWP- 19770 -2015, Dated- 15.09.2015 Hearing for the same is fixed for Thursday i.e 17th September 2015.

    All Gujarat Federation of Tax Consultants vs. CBDT (Gujarat High Court), SPL.C.A. No. 14727 of 2015 , Dated-15.09.2015 Date of Hearing Fixed for Monday i.e. 21st September 2015.

    Soon Trade Bodies and Chartered Accountants from Nagpur and Rajasthan may also file the writ petition in their Jurisdictional High Court.

  30. ADV KAPIL BANGINWAR says:

    Due date should be extended upto 30 Nov 2015. CBDT cant charge interest from assessee for 2 month.Because CBDT has issued IT return late by 2 month. Means issue late form by CBDT & he also want for interest from assessee…CBDT & FM plz extend the due dt & dont waste ur & our time in time pass…

  31. Vaibhav Gulati says:

    CBDT should extend the due date by atleast 30-45 days, they may charge interest u/s 234-A if they feel they’ll loose revenue. Till 7th September returns of assessees not subject to tax audit were being filed. Then came time for advance tax. In 15 odd days, the mistakes are bound to be committed in a pressure cooker like situation and on the basis of minor clerical errors, the cases will be selected for scrutiny.

  32. Yogesh S. Limaye says:

    1-2 years ago, there were 22 revisions in the ITR filing utility. Another idea is that, the concerned honourable CBDT members should be required to go through the drill of filing return of income [both with and without tax audit] / tax audit reports etc.

  33. Bhushan Paithankar says:

    CA Avinashji wake up sir. No devlopement?

    Board is interested in “Ugarani” than compliance. Basic attitude must be change to see real problem of tax payer. Board forgot main object of Tax Audit. Tax audit is introduced for error free compliance of taxation and report tax evasion by professionals. Now CBDT treat us like tax collecting agents.

  34. SHANMUKHA says:

    It is habitually the CBDT is Extending the time at the end of the days only. it is not correct.

  35. camaneesh k sharma says:

    Why such an order is really beyond imagination. this country is of farmers army persons salaried employees. but never forget the back bone of the country the business community who is major source of employment in fact the father the country who is providing revenue for subsidy for farming,defense budget & security of vips. to ignore him is just like ignoring Lord Vishnu who is at the center of all Gods.

  36. kssunder says:

    CBDT should issue a circular extending time at least till 30th Nov 2015 on same conditions as last year.This will save everybody’s time and effort

  37. Niloy says:

    Now when our anxiety will come to an end ???

  38. sanjay says:

    As there is no date extention, all C.A. should write remark in audit report,

    Due to shortage of time and non cooperation from CBDT, under protest, the audit work completed on test check basis and we cannot comply all the requirments.

  39. Suman Cakravarty says:

    Well done sir, hope, God may bless all of us.

  40. LAKSHMI says:

    By extending the due date to 07/09/2015 for other than compulsory audits, we have been working on these cases upto 07/09/2015. Now in 3 weeks asking us to finish all the compulsory audit cases is not fair. CBDT should give extension of time upto 30/11/2015 and it should also be announced at the earliest so that many people don’t get heart attacks.

    • hariprasad.g says:

      true

  41. Suryakant m advocate& tax practitioner says:

    Good response will be in our favour date must be extended

  42. ARUNKUMAR says:

    Now what due date not extended

  43. RAVINDER says:

    Govt will give extension till 30 Nov as in last year but only after ensuring that they can collect interest for the 2 months – again as in last year. If CBDT suo-moto gives extension they will lose this interest. I think CAs and clients should straightaway agree for 2 months’ interest and the problem will be solved

  44. SANTHOSH BABU D says:

    PLEASE EXTEND THE DUE DATE UPTO 30/11/2015

  45. jagwinder singh says:

    please extend the date audit return

  46. vipan kaushal says:

    Very good move, CA Avinash Gupta and Tax Research Foundation. We are with you . All the best !! –

  47. Shashi says:

    Kya writ or kya PIL same thing hai judge sir ji se copy lekar usi time subject change kar do aur application par hand written PIL likh do…..kisi VIP ya neta ka issue hota to hath k hath ho jata……..tax audit ki date jaldi aa rahi hai aur jaldi mai audit report wrong file ho rahi hai. Court sir ji ko jaldi verdict dena chahiye…

  48. Alok Nagar says:

    I think that CBDT should know that any upgrade in software and system required extra skill to understand the changes and it will take time to understand. here is the steps to be taken by the professionals :

    1. Download the utility and guide line provided by CBDT on income tax site.
    2. Study and understand the new formats and new information required.
    3. Upgrade the current software utility from it’s vendor.
    4. Get training for the same from professionals.
    5. Provide in house training to Audit Staff and concern person

    etc. apart from that most of the senior professional are not very much expert on handling of software and utility to uplode the return. They required technical IT Professional and due to lack of time the technical person can not handle the multiple cases in such a short period. That can be self justified that CBDT has taken so much time to provide the utility to uplode the return.

    Instead of asking for extension of date every year there should be law that after providing bug free utility on income tax site 90 days should be given the professional for the same.

    Alok Nagar

    • Sanjay Kumar Tiwari says:

      Very Well said I agree to your verdict. Its very disgusting whether the person seated on high profile post have knowledge about uploading process & utility or not. I think they even no knowledge about system configuration, fake path, driver utility etc. Then why they dismiss the application. They will extend the due date on 30th sept when major tax revenue shall be collected. Very idiot persons are they.

  49. ANIL DHAVLE says:

    GOOD Effort by CA Avinash Gupta and Tax Research Foundation

  50. ANIL DHAVLE says:

    ganapathiji bhi hi hamare sath due date extend hojayega

  53. PJ says:

    justice delayed is justice denied; hope & expect a positive response from The Hon’ble Delhi High Court.Fully agree with the view of CA.narasimhan as there is no apparent stand taken from the leaders. Hope they are doing something in this regard

  54. CA.narasimhan trl says:

    Our heart felt thaks to CA avinash guptaji for taking up the cause on our behalf. Atleast the existing council members/ members who have started campigning for elections should learn from CA Avinash Guptaji and come together at least for this cause. not heard a single council member voicing against the dictatorial approach of CBDT. May be their photo op may be lost if they voice their concern.Sorry to see that some of the central ministers are CA’s, and they turn a deaf ear/blind eye to this serious problem. All the best Guptaji

  55. DAYANAND JHA says:

    Sir

    Date should be extended till at least 31/12/2015. Sir we are in full stress to complete the audit but still in such situation it will affect our quality of audit.
    CBDT should be liberal with auditee . At one point they are liberal with Individual IT filer who contributes 30% of revenue and audited file contributes rest 70%. Why such impartiallity. Sir plz. file PIL. We are always with you.

  56. SUNIL PATEL says:

    EVERY YEAR BUDGET DECLARE IN FEBRUARY FOR NEXT FINANCIAL YEAR AND RETURN TO BE SUBMIT AFTER 18 MONTH OF DECLARATION OF BUDGET WHY CBDT TAKE MORE THAN 16 MONTH TIME TO DECLARE FORMS , PROCEDURE , XEMA , UTILITY ???

    HIGH COURT SHOULD GIVE DIRECTION TO CBDT THAT DECLARE ALL THE FORMS, PROCEDURE, XEMA , UTILITY BEFORE END OF THE FINANCIAL YEAR AND PEMANANTLY DUE DATE FOR SUBMIT OF AUDITED RETURN IS 2 MONTHS AFTER DUE DATE OF UNAUDITED RETURN IF WITH ANY REASON CBDT EXTEND DUE DATE FOR UNAUDITED RETURN IT’S AUTOMATIC AUDITED RETURN DUE DATE EXTEND 2 MONTH IT IS PERMANENT SOLUTION FOR PUBLIC AS WELL AS OUR PROFESSION

  57. D Ramani says:

    Thanks for the initiative taken and all the best.

  58. hariprasad.g says:

    Please file PIL. We are with you. CBDT / GOVT should extend the date without causing unnecessary stress on the part of CAs and also on auditee assessees when we are working and contributing for the sake of country. We are asking extension for the sake of QUALITY AUDIT.

  59. VIPUL ARORA says:

    DATE SHOULD BE EXTENDED UPTO NOV.

  60. RAVINDER says:

    Govt is treating CAs like dirt because CAs crawl when asked to bend. Through tax audit, CAs do the work of ITOs and payment comes from the clients, against whom reports are prepared and they are penalised. In no other profession, one works for someone and gets paid by someone else. No time is given for the audit and if quality suffers strict action is taken against the CAs – what a thankless profession.

  61. Niloy says:

    Now what will be next??

  62. N.Sivasalapathy says:

    All the best sir, for your effort.

    CBDT itself should extend due date without waiting for court directions

  63. pawan says:

    High Court has not accepted the Writ and said that the issue involved seems to be of Public interest and Appellant should file Public Interest Litigation (PIL) instead of Writ Petition.

    sir what about today haering for extended due date of tax audit

  66. camaneesh k sharma says:

    my request to CBDT for Extension of due date u/s 44AB
    Sir In our AP , Our CT department bring Lot of Changes in filing of VAT Returns from the month of June. So we fully concentrated in this work till August ending.And also our Dealers are not yet happy with CT department. So we are unable to complete the Tax Audit Accounts with in the short time. So Please Kindly Extend due date of 44 AB Tax Filing to 30-11-2015.If we are not Complete the Accounts how can CA’s are doing Audit? So please Under stand The Problem and move to extend due date at least 60 days.(30-11-2015)
    Karanam Subba Rao, Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh

    • karanam Subba rao says:

      I thought our Feeling is really reached to CBDT? CBDT not understand our real problems. how can we up load directly to the CBDT or Finance ministers wing? please clarify sir(any body of readers can give clarification. In this situation what is the next step of CBDT.
      Karanam Subba Rao and friends

  94. R K MISHRA ADVOCATE says:

    It is very unfortunate for professionals that in most of the cases professionals are compelled to go court.CBDT has taken decision arbitrarily, unjustified and illegal in the eye of law. He is misusing his power. why does CBDT not release form in April. It should be released in APRIL.Plan to release the form Must be made before April. Ministry must direct to release the form in April in every year.

  95. Vidya says:

    Please extend for 45 days for tax Audit cases instead of 37 days for non audit cases as we are facing power failures in our state karnataka.Hope I am not wrong on my part.

  96. Vidya says:

    We really want an extension especially in Karnataka-Bengaluru.We are facing power failures. We are not able to update ourselves for filing works and auditors are also not able to fulfil their tasks. Since the date has been extended for 37 days for non tax Audits case, the same extension to be made at least 45 days for Tax Audit cases.

  97. PANKAJ K. SHARMA says:

    Sir,

    Very good. Sufficient time must be given to file correct data. It will be better if CBDT extend due date itself instead anyone approach to H’ble High Court or H’ble Supreme Court.

  98. kumar says:

    Very Good
    Instead of fighting every year,we should find permanent solution to this
    & Andhra pradesh State new format given for Vat Returns filing with Purchases & Sales invoices uploading system that system are new introduced that vat return filing taking many hours & days so w e f June 2015 On wards please extend time for tax audit I.t.Rerurns

  99. Sanjay Shah says:

    Good step. Hope Honourable Court consider d application as earliest.

  100. Vaibhav Gulati says:

    the due date for filing tax returns subject to tax audit should b extended on following grounds:
    1. the due date for returns not subject to tax audit was extended upto 7th sept. its quite natural that tax audit work will begin after that.
    2. the clients r coming in between for calculation of their advance tax. this will continue till 15th september.
    3. this year lot of time is taken in getting the digital signature. documents r reqd to be attested from bank manager. some bank managers r asking unnecessary questions. even digital authorities r taking lot of time in issuing the DSC. if we apply 10 applications, they give 7 and say there will b verification of others. this is giving lot of tension.
    4. Now all bank accounts and aadhaar need to b given. it takes time to find IFSC for all bank accounts.
    5. its bcoz of these reasons above, lot of time is being consumed in non constructive work.
    6. there will b very limited time left in preperation of tax audit report and errors r bound to happen in hurry which may expose the cases to scrutiny on the basis of mere clerical errors and not on the basis of genuine grounds.

  101. Mukesh Kapoor says:

    The purpose of the TAR was to assist the Department in getting the information and the Assessee ,to file the correct information. In order to achieve the dual purpose, CAs ensure that the desired results are met. With the stringent penalty provisions and indictment of the Professionals by the Statutory Authorities in the recent times, it is important for them to execute their duties cautiously and to report accurately, as is expected of them. Scrutinising the whole lot of data of various Assessees, is a Herculean task. One is always at the tenterhook till the ITR and TAR forms put in the domain. Then there are glitches of filing and uploading. All this requires time and endurance. If the forms are available by the first day of the AY, there is ample time available to vet the forms and compile the relevant information accordingly. The Department must view the problem from our perspective too. Treat us as , in a way, Amicus Curiae, in so far as in providing the facts.
    Resorting to writs every year by the Professionals for seeking justice, indicates the dictatorial attitude and undermines the sanctity of the Board.

  102. Surenra Mehta, Advocate,Jodhpur says:

    I endorse and support the writ petition filed in Delhi High Court. Hope justice will be imparted by suitable directions of the Hon’ble Court in favourable to the petitioners.

  103. CA Kirit Dedhia says:

    God save our CA Profession from the Govt Atrocities.

  104. CA Kirit Dedhia says:

    It is really very unfortunate that Government and that too Modi Government is not listening to our woes. Every year we have to approach Court and feel the stress. The amended Companies Act has made our life miserable and top of it Government is expecting us to complete filing in a short duration. Are these called “Acche Din” ? It is easy to promise “Achhe Din” as an election propoganda but in real life , we are not seeing a bit of it. I support CA Avinash Gupta for a bold step of filing petition.

  105. CA R.SIVAKUMAR says:

    Thanks for the efforts. But unfortunately every year we have to go to the courts for getting justice. Another fact is chartered accountants don’t have the same kind of unity and courage as our brothers in legal profession. I feel for 1 year if all CAs across the country unitedly refuses to adhere to the government pressure, probably then the voice CAs can be heard.

    • SANJAY KUMAR TIWARI says:

      Very Well said I agree, It is very disappointing that CBDT is not considering the justified reasons, rather it is much disappointing fact that why All CA are not united Maximum CA are hiding in their offices even not taking any joint actions. The CA who are nominees for forthcoming elections must have to prove right now or never. All advocates are so united but shame on CA. Very pity situation.

    • HARIPRASAD G says:

      Fully agree with you. Govts. listen only to UNIONS.

  106. Vinod Kumar Aggarwal says:

    Only God & honorable High Court can help us.

    • Bhushan says:

      Only God.

      Hon. Court playing trick to avoide decision by refusing to accept writ petition. Hon. Court may sau moto convert it to PIL and heard it properly. Now it clearly indicate that MODI raj going to screw bussinessman and profesional faternity.

  107. SADEV MAKWANA says:

    VERY GOOD AS IT DEPT ALREADY WALK DELAY TO PUT ONLINE ITR SCHEMA HENCE ALL TAXPAYERS EXPECTED THAT THE DUE DATE OF AUDITED TAX PAYERS MUST EXTEND FOR ONE MONTH
    NOW AS DEPT REFUSE THE DEMAND HENCE ALL HOPE ARE GONE OVER TO COURT LET’S SEE WHAT HAPPEN

  108. CA Anil Verma says:

    The due date for TAR & related returns should be 6 months after release of latest utility of forms and returns to avoid all litigations. Every time knocking the doors of court to get the extension is not good for our profession as govt may include other type of professionals to do tax audits, which will be a irreparable loss to our faternity

  109. Arvind Agrawal says:

    CBDT MUST PY PENALTY FOR DELAY IN ISSUE OF NOTIFICATIONS

  110. Atul shah says:

    Mr.Gupta
    It is very good move,The drafting of petition is very nice.we pray god that CBDT should consider our request

  111. Neeraj Chawla CA says:

    After going through the grounds of writ, It seems that we will definitely gets positive result be way of extension of due date u/s 44AB read with section 139(1). Thanks of good efforts.

  116. CA PK SHARMA says:

    Very Good Initiative Sir

  117. R.SAKTHIVEL says:

    Good step take and hope high court will favor for our ca’s

  118. G V PISE says:

    Why the CBDT is not having any mandatory dates for publishing ITR Forms, or the notifications which are affecting the assessies by and large. Why opinion of the apex body i.e. Institute of Chartered Accountants which is always cooperating to the Govt. not taken into account? If such a small things are considered by the CBDT there will not be any further writs on such a non productive issues.

    • CA Sumedh Karmarkar says:

      Its also important to note that we have completed the Tax Audits in last few years before or on 30th September, whenever there was no such problem.

      Extending the dates for non-audit cases and not for audit cases is not logical at all.

  119. Rajkumar Goel says:

    Good step take and all the best . Hope Honourable High Court will consider the matter and our goverment must walkup from sleep.Adv. Goel

  122. Santoshkumar Hiswankar says:

    Fantastic drafting .All support to our friends who are working for the fraternity at large.The High court cannot turn a blind eye to the petition The case must be presented in the way and the force it is drafted.

  123. Anoop Kumar Gupta says:

    Thanks,To CA Association in taking right steps at right time. Hope Honorable High Court will consider the matter.All the Best to All My Dear Auditors and hope will extend of due date.

  124. Govinda Raju says:

    well done sir. Hope Honourable High Court will consider the matter.

  125. JAYANT MAHAJAN says:

    Even more than 1 month after notifying the forms, then keep on updating the forms due to errors/bugs in these forms,but still have guts to say that due date is not to be extended. Moreover, the quality of utilities for these ITR are very poor. those responsible for these should also be held responsible.

  126. b.c.guru swamy says:

    very good move sir congratulations and wish you a success

  127. ISHWAR GURNANI says:

    Govt. has accepted long back that we need 2 months to complete our audit work and comply with various requirements under I.T and Companies Act. So when the date of filing the returns for assessees not required to get their account audited was extended from 31/08/2015 to 07/09/2015, the due date for filing the returns of assessees required to get their accounts audited should have been suo-moto extended till 31/10/2015, if not 07/11/2015.
    Our courts are already very busy with pending issues. So these kinds of issues should not be added to their workload every year.

  128. abhishek joshi says:

    CBDT HAVE TO EXTENT DUE DATE FOR TAX AUDIT
    HOPE TO GET POSITIVE RESPONSE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

  129. Manoj Sharma says:

    Extension of Due Dates set a wrong precedent for professionals. This is not new that the last date known to our knowledge just now. Time bound scrutiny/audit is must to uphold professional excellence and in the greater interest of the society at large. If we cannot do in time, we must find a alternate solution. One must seek extension only in rare cases but we a vibrant democracy seeks such extensions every now and then and it is now becoming everyone’s right to seek such relief.

  130. Bhupesh Sharma says:

    Very good effort by CA Avinash Gupta and Tax Research Foundation. We are with you.

    All the best !!!

  131. sanjay tripathi says:

    this is a very good initiative and step taken by CA avinas guptaji. we are leaving in deaf and dumb government operated country. Acchedin public ke nahi BJP walo ke aa gaye hai. Penalty aur intrest on tax se wo “SARKARI TIJORI” BHARNA CHAHTE HAI.I think our Institute has also to file a pettition.

  132. Krishna says:

    If they would not extended the non auditable firms due date filing return date, then some how auditable firms work can be done, but its too late, now there is no chance, they have to extend the due date for auditable firms…….

  133. SUNDAR-ADVOCATE-ERODE says:

    GOOD EFFORT.

  134. arun kumar says:

    cbdt members should be held guilty and penalised for acting in a dictating manners and not fulfilling their job responsibilities (failure to notify and implement e filing in time)

  135. Balasaheb says:

    Demand for extention is logically correct. Hope we will get.

  136. CA Rajendra Parmar says:

    Sir,

    In our country the crops and business season begins in October and ends by September next. Because of Englishization of the Country, Accounting yearend preferred as 31st March which cuts the working period of the year in two parts. Because of continuation of season between April-September period as also festive season and vacation falling in that period, people get less time to attend to their affairs and accounts. Preferably, accounting yearend should be September 30, and filing compliance should be by March next. This will solve most of the time issues for the business communities.

    But who cares where the penalty & fines are treated as good and lucrative source of income to the Government. It is sad that the Government, instead of being a source of security for the citizens, is keen to prove the citizens as criminals and defaulters by, some how, creating technical defaults in compliance. So…sad. I suggest to include this as a ground of appeal/writ.

  137. CA Ravi says:

    CA Institute should also file writ petition as their regulator for us.
    Due to the amendments made in the Form No. 3CD, the reporting responsibilities of the assessee and the auditor have increased.
    The assessee may have to put in place systems and processes to collect the information required by the amended Form No. 3CD.
    The revision to the tax audit report has added new responsibilities for most companies and auditors. These changes require more time to collect information given the potentially short timeframe for implementation.
    By giving us extra time it will also facilitate the administration of tax laws by a proper presentation of accounts before the tax authorities and considerably save the time of Assessing Officers in carrying out routine verification. The time of the Assessing Officers saved and could be utilised for attending to more important and investigational aspects of a case.
    Effort by CA Avinash Gupta and Tax Research Foundation, Delhi is commendable.

  138. Sai Kumar says:

    Thank you Avinash Gupta & Others for the initiative. This government came in to power by promising EASE OF DOING BUSINESS in INDIA, but this context itself shows that the Government and CBDT is at it’s high-handedness. Few of my clients suffered a lot, as they planned to avail bank OD facility, but the bankers denied to process without latest ITR’s.

  139. Ca Suresh saharia says:

    Central Government of India have given a commitment of ease of doing Business in India.The writ is surely reminder of the commitment made to be fulfilled. Great efforts.

  140. muk says:

    The C A Institute and the Tax Practioners institute, Advocates should have taken a common platform to voice this grievience. As a body the appeal should have been filed.
    Not only delay in prescribing the form but the electronic medium through which the uploading is done is always trouble shooting and changes are done at various intervals not only under income tax act but the other relevant statues too. The work load of accountant has increased as there are so many laws under which compliance is required and is all time bound. Check the deadlines under various acts under various laws and particularly the vat laws. There are many a glitch in electronic filing which eats into a business man’s and auditors time. This can also be highlighted. I hope not only this year but every year whenever this sort of problems are there, the CBDT should extend the time voluntarily to facilitate the procedures. ~ A step well taken and all support. Let the last date under audit cases be extended to November every year and all the forms etc are prescribed before 31st May every year.

  141. girish says:

    The fact of nonavailability of the forms on 01 st April of every year needs to be hard pressed, and a permanent solution to this laxed attitude of department in notifying the forms should be SOUGHT
    the departments attitude and the manner of examination of the representation is also questionable.
    The Foreign nationals and NRI clients are yelling at us as to why we are unable to file the returns in the first weeks of April itself WHEN THE GOVERNMENT IS ALREADY COLLECTING ADVANCE TAX
    Why the government is permitted to collect advance tax if it is not able to perform its SOVEREIGN FUNCTIONS IN TIME

  142. kssunder says:

    Since 30th September is to be reckoned with tax liabilities can worked out only after 1st October.Also under VAT laws 6 months are given to rework on goods returns. Therefore sales made towards end of March can be returned by 30th September customer

  143. CA Hariprasad says:

    Good move and Govt should not put tax payers / auditors to trouble and Govt should stand for the taxpayers who are contributing for the country. Govt / CBDT should extend the date before the verdict of HC.

  144. TAPAS CHANDRA says:

    Thanks,CA Avinash Gupta & Tax Research Foundation,Delhi.

  145. Ramasamy V says:

    We should demand for removing the specified date in the Act itself. Filing TAR with Return should be implemented irrespective of the date of filing of return. TAR is to facilitate the AO to make an assessment in a easy manner. auditing and filing at a later date will not water down the quality of TAR. The govt is not going to loose anything if filing within specified date is removed. There need not be any requests in future for such extension. Please add this also during hearing if possible.

  146. Ramesh Kumar Thakur says:

    Dear Sir,
    I am shouting against the Non extension of the Date of any Return filing Due Date, CBDT himself Defaulter in uploading the ITR without any vital change accept the Bank Account Number, The CBDT uploaded the ITR’s ending of first week of AUGUST-2015 and after that several complication arises in uploading the ITR – AY -15-16, while no problem arise in uploading the ITR FOR AY -14-15, after several queries the Help line suggest that Internet Explorer should not be less than 9,- some one told me that CBDT still not allowed to upload the ITR – AY-15-16; The CBDT not flash any instruction and condition regarding the Internet Explorer must be 9 or more than 9 VERSION. The Assessee and as well as I the Professional of Income Tax was in problem till the Internet Explorer 9 version.
    I think the Date must be extended till 31st December 2015 or TILL COMPLETION OF ASSEMBLY ELECTION – BIHAR.
    THANKING YOU
    RAMESH KUMAR THAKUR

    Goverment makes frequent changes in forms, enactments, procedures and online computer software and systems.It takes time for Assesses and others to get familiar with these changes and to gather information.It is obvious that it takes time to percolate these at all levels.Taxpayers of the country are making best efforts to comply with this even in such uncertain environment.What they are seeking is just extension of time for proper compliances. It is very justful that date is extended.

EVERY YEAR WE HAVE TO MAKE AND ADJUST WITH DIFFERENT SETS OF SYSTEMS, SOFTWARE, JAVA UPDATES, INTERNET EXPLORER VERSIONS ETC. FOR INCOME TAX AND COMPANY LAW. WHY CAN’T THERE BE SOME UNIFOMITY WITH GOVT. DEPTS. FOR SYSTEM AND SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS. IN OUR OFFICES IN 1 SYSTEM DIGITAL SIGN WILL WORK FINE FOR I.TAX SITE BUT IT MAY NOT WORK FOR MCA SITE. CAN’T WE DEMAND SOME STABILITY AND CONTINUITY IN INCOME TAX AND COMPANIES ACT ? SAY NO MAJOR CHANGES FOR NEXT 3 YEARS.

    Goodd initiative. For us also, it is better to notify the form in time and not to extend the due date.
    So many details required in the form are collected in Tax Audit and we cannot complete the audit before hand
    Putting all pressure on CAS are not good for the profession.
    At the end, executive democracy is not good for the country and The country started to suffer from last UPA Rule itself because of executivism

  168. Varma says:

    Dear All, it is very unfortunate in this country that Govt. bodies like CBDT are to be shown the way through legal course to comply with law. What right they have in asking us to comply with the laws of the land? I still have faith in our judiciary system. But what if the writ petition is rejected? God only knows.

    why only delay in notification of the forms only why not the application of the provisions for calculation of depreciation as per the companies act 2013 wherein we have to collect the data of assets for more than 40-50 years or since inception of the company how much difficult the work is for the staffs of the clients who are being sandwiched between the auditors requirements and the directors/ owners of the company but nobody is thinking about these poor staffs and how come our honable finance minister will know the plight of these office staffs .

    Sir,
    if court rejects the plea then that would be a weapon to dept. The writ must be the last option after trying out all other avenues. Anyway all the best.

    The writ filed is absolutely right. Please try & take signature campaign online, like some NGO are doing, so that it can be produced before Hon Delhi HC.
