The issue of extension of last date for e-filing returns of income and audit reports u/s 44AB due by 30th September, 2015 has been the subject matter of litigation in various High Courts across the country.

In order to avoid discrimination between taxpayers residing in different jurisdictions and to be fair to all, and also in view of paucity of time to approach the Hon’ble Supreme Court by way of Special Leave Petition, the Government has decided that across the country, all the returns of income and audit reports u/s 44AB which were due for e-filing by 30th September, 2015, may now be filed by 31st October, 2015.

Necessary order u/s 119 of the Income-tax Act, 1961 has been issued by CBDT in this regard.

  • Dear Sirs,
    The team of Tax guru team , we are very very thankful to you for your continuous feedback and updates in this regard.

    thanks a lot once again.

  • It is understood that date for filing Income tax Return and Audit report for 44AB audit cases has been extended to 31st October 2015. But is there any change in "due date" for Self Assessment Tax also? I believe only date for filing ITR and TAR has been extended and last date for paying tax is still 30th September. Reply from experts appreciated.
