All Gujarat Federation of Tax Consultants (AGFTC) & Income Tax Bar Association (ITBA) has made a representation to Hon. Union Minister of Finance, Smt Nirmala Sitharaman on Hardships to the income tax payers due to delay in providing e-filing platform and frequent amendments in return preparation Utilities and Requested for extending due date for submitting Tax Audit Reports/related Income Tax returns for financial year ended on 31.03.2019 due to delay in release of utilities and heavy rains [A.Y. 2019-2020). Text of the Representation is as follows:

To,
Hon. Smt Nirmala Sitharaman
Hon. Union Minister of Finance,
Ministry of Finance, Government of India,
North Block, New Delhi – 110 001
Email: fmo©nic.in

Respected Madam,

Ref: [i] Hardships to the income tax payers due to delay in providing e-filing platform and frequent amendments in return preparation Utilities

[ii] Request for extending due date for submitting Tax Audit Reports/related I. Tax returns for financial year ended on 31.03.2019 due to delay in release of utilities and heavy rains [A.Y. 2019-2020]

Ref: Order u/s 119 dt. 23.07. 2019 issued by CBDT extending due date for filing returns from 31.07.2019 to 31.08.2019. [F.No./225/157/2019/ITA.II]

1. ABOUT ASSOCIATIONS :-

All Gujarat Federation of Tax Consultants (AGFTC) & Income Tax Bar Association (ITBA)

AGFTC founded in year 1992, is the first & only apex regional body of advocates, chartered accountants & tax practitioners of Gujarat, having membership strength of more than 1400 professionals and institutional membership of 34 from all the districts of Gujarat.

2. ITBA is first professional association founded in 1947 comprising of Tax Professionals, Advocates& Chartered Accountants, with membership strength of more than 950 from all over Gujarat. The prime objective of both these associations is not only to work for the cause of its professionals but also educate the public at large and, to act as a catalyst between citizens & government authorities by providing suggestions & inputs relating to administration of I. Tax Law. AGFTC regularly organizes seminars, lectures on tax advocacy and legal awareness in mofussil regions across the Gujarat.

3. We appreciate the commitment and efforts of Govt. to re-orient tax administration to make it pro-tax payer and for providing ease of doing business. The experience of stake holders, since last more than 1 decade, says that Central Board of Direct Taxes [CBDT] has made substantial delays in notifying the ITRs forms and I.T. return preparation software followed by the frequent amendments in schema and validation of rules creating the chaotic situation for assesses and tax professionals, who are required to approach CBDT/Hon. High Court, year after year with a request for extension of due dates for filing the ITRs. Because it is assessee who would have to get agonized and face the consequences of delay in filing return, on account of delay in providing platform for online filing of returns by the CBDT.

4. Most of tax-payers are now mandatorily required to file their returns of income online, either using the return preparation software developed by the third parties or made available by the CBDT. Whenever, if there is change in return/Schema/Validation rules, it requires up dating and providing afresh utility on e-filing portal of the dept. as well as validation of software by the private developers, which in turn is required to be explained and understood by the users and sometimes requires collection of further information/data from the tax-payers by the tax professionals.

5. For the AN 2019-20, again the CBDT has changed the ITR forms necessitating the changes in software/utilities for online filing of returns in mid of the years from time to time. The annexure downloaded from e-filing portal, providing the chronological details of release, updating of schema/validation rules and date of providing Income Tax Return Preparation Software is submitted herewith for ready reference.

6. Though, CBDT has extended the due date for filing income tax returns from 31st July 2019 to 31st August 2019, in cases of tax payers who are liable to file their income tax returns by the said due date (vide order-F. No. 225/157/2019/ITA.II). The extension of due date 31st July 2019 also necessitates the extensions of due date of 30th September, 2019, which is the due date for filing the return of income for the company, persons (other than company) whose accounts are required to be audited under this Act or under any other law for the time being in force, or a working partner of a firm whose accounts are required to be audited. In these cases, assessee are required to furnish voluminous data in form 3CD, which in turn is required to be tax audited and uploaded on website of dept. followed by furnishing of ITR forms. I. T. return preparation software in cases ITR 3,5,6 & 7, applicable to tax audit returns, have been provided between dates 6-8-2019 to 19-08­2019. [vide annexure]

7. Minimum additional time gap of 2 months provided in the law between both the due dates is compressed to only 30 days [ i.e. from 1st September to 30th September, 2019] due to non-extension of due date of 30th September, 2019.

From the historical due dates charts provided in I.T. Act, it can be observed the since A.Y 1989-90 to A.Y 1996-97 the legislature has given an additional time of 2 months to assesses (other than companies) who are required to get their books of accounts audited, then the assessees deriving income from Business & Profession & who are not required to get their books of account audited.From A.Y 2001-02 to 2007-08 the additional time limit given to company and assessees whose accounts are required to be audited is kept at 3 months.

8. From A.Y 2008-09 onwards, although, the due dates for filling return of income are advanced from 31st October to 30th September, but, minimum additional time limit of 2 months is provided in case of assesses who are required to get their books of account audited, then those who are not required to get their accounts audited.

9. It is intriguing that despite of Hon. Gujarat High Court categorical direction, in the case of All Gujarat Federation of Tax Consultants V. CBDT [SPL No. 15075 of 2015], extending the due date for E-filing of the income tax returns in respect of A.Y. 2015-16 due to delay in releasing of e-filing utility, that henceforth, CBDT shall endeavor to ensure that the forms and utilities for e-filing of income tax returns are ordinarily made available on the 1st day of April of the assessment year.

10. The CBDT ought to have paid heed to the repeated directives of various High Courts and similar requests made by the stake holders in past, and could have notified the amended forms made applicable with effect A.Y. 2019-20 well in advance, before commencement of the relevant assessment year i.e. 1st April, 2019, instead of mid of the assessment year.

11. Hon. Gujarat High Court, in order dated 22nd September, 2014 in the case of All Gujarat Federation of Tax Consultants V. CBDT [SCA No.12656 of 2014] observed that any introduction or new utility/software with additional requirement in the middle of the year ordinarily is not desirable. Any change unless inevitable can be planned well in advance. Keeping in focus such comprehensive process re-engineering may not result in undue hardship to the stake holders.

12. It is requested that CBDT shall also exercise the discretionary powers vested in it under section 119 of the Act, by extending due date of 30th September 2019, to ameliorate the difficulties faced by the assessees on account of no default on their part, by extending the due date for filing the income tax returns for a one and half month up to 15th November, 2019, on account of the delay in notifying the forms and utilities. Otherwise, it is the assessees who would have to face the consequences of not filing the returns in time.

13. Though, due to delay in notification of forms, CBDT has extended the due date for filling return of income from 31st July to 31st August in case of assessees, who are not required to get their books of accounts audited. Non-extending the similar relief to the cases, where due date of filing Tax Audit Report & ITR form falls on 30th Sept. 2019 would be unjustified and cause severe hardship to these assessees.

14. Further, this year rain God has blessed the whole of India in abundance. The heavy rains have been continuing in whole of Gujarat till date, resulting into flood situation in various parts and disruption of normal life & business activities. Non-extension of due date will cause lot of hard ship to assessees. We look forward to your compassionate response.

Thanks & Regards,

THERE IS NO REVENUE LOSS IN PASSING ORDER GRANTING EXTENSION. IT IS A KILLING PRESSURE. KINDLY BE FAVOURABLE TO CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT FRATERNITY

  7. C.V.Promod PP says:

    Now I have to concentrate on a handful of tax audit returns for which I am requesting for extension of time till 31 October 2019.

  10. Mukesh Arora says:

    In this atmosphere of acute tension and pain, what is most surprising and agonising, is the callous and indifferent attitude of the institute and the council members. How can they be so oblivious to the agony and distress through which the professionals are passing at this time without any fault on their part. What do we elect them for?. Do they think that the demand of the CA professionals is unjustified or unreasonable. If so, they should categorically put forward their opinion. If they do not have the courage to act on behalf of the members at tough times then they have no right to assume this office. Is the institute there only to collect membership fees and and show whips to members against any probable deviations.

  11. NARESH BHATIA says:

    ITS NOT POSSIBLE FOR ALL OF US TO FILE AMENDED ITR6 WITH ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND TAX AUDIT REPORT OF ALL THE CLIENTS. GOVT SHOULD EXTEND THE DATE FOR AT LEAST 1 MONTH I.E UP TO 31.10.2019

  12. naresh pant says:

    Due to a lot of Work Load by GST Returns & Annual GST Return we all have spend our Valuable Time, gov decide to extend gst annual return at last few days , we all are in a big tension , so please extend due date 30 sept to 30 Nov.

  13. CA Rosy Goel says:

    Looking into all facts it is practically not possible to adhere the time line. Date extension announcement should be made immediately so that professionals can do there work correctly without going high BP. Later the announcement likely to poor quality of work as uncertainty looms. Better extend till 30.11.19 or minimum till 15.11.19.

  14. Ramesh Kumar says:

    Respected Finance Minister & CBDT we all accountants suffering due to heavy load of matching of GST return for audit purpose. We are all busy in individual returns upto 31st Aug., 2019 and now One month is not sufficient to file audit return within 30the Sept., 2019. So we all request at your good self please please please extend the due date up to 30th Nov, 2019. Hoping for an favorable reply. Thanks

  15. Sunil S Sarda says:

    Due Date of Tax Audit must be extended up to 31.10.2019 due work pressure and GST Reconciliation with books of accounts.

    This is a hard ship situation in ground level .

  16. Mohammed Gous Pasha says:

    Respected Madam…

    Please extend the due date for filing of Audit report for the AY 2019-20…..Please understand our problem…..GST it is one of the big head

  17. HSV BABU says:

    MINISTRY DON’T KNOW THAT WE PROFESSIONALS ARE HOW MUCH TENSE IN THESE JUNCTION MONTHS. YOU KNOW ALL ASSESSEE ARE GIVING DATA OF SALE AND PURCHASE BILL AND BANK PASS BOOKS ONLY AND THEIR RESPONSIBLE IS OVER AFTER THIS THEY KEEP ON ASKING US WHETHER FILING IS OVER ? FILING IS OVER? . THE EXERCISE OF ENTRY OF THOSE VOUCHERS ALONG-WITH EXPENDITURE AND STATUTORY VOUCHERS , DOING BRS TALLYING AND RECONCILING WITH GST RETURNS ALL ON OUR HEADACHE ONLY. ONLY THESE WORKS FOR ONE INDIVIDUAL COMPANY WILL TAKE 3-4 DAYS TIME TO PREPARE CONSOLIDATED BOOKS OF ACCOUNTS. THE ASSESSEE ARE ALL DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THESE..THEY ARE NOT WORRIED ABOUT ANY ENTRY TALLYING OR NOT. SO MANY ENTRIES THEY THEMSELVES DONT KNOW WHY PAID OR FROM WHOM RECEIVED FOR. LIKE THIS EXERCISE WHEN WE HAVE ABOUT AT LEAST 50 ASSESSEES , WHEN SHOULD WE COMPLETE THEIR BOOKS OF ACCOUNTS AS PER STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS? OKAY … AT THE OTHER SIDE THE GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS ARE ALSO DONT CARE ABOUT ANY ASSESSEES FAILURE OF FILING THEY ONLY SEND INTIMATIONS , MESSAGES ONLY ALERTING FOR FOR FILING OF RETURNS. ASSSESSEES RECEIVE THIS AND THEY AGAIN TORTURE THEIR AUDITORS FOR FILING.. LIKE THIS BOTH THE SIDE WE AUDITORS AND PROFESSIONALS ONLY ARE SUFFERING AND LOSING OUR HEALTH , VALUABLE TIME OF ENJOYMENT WITH FAMILY. IF PRESSURE FROM ASSESSEE AND DEPARTMENTS AT A TIME FALLS WHAT A PROFESSIONALS SHOULD DO? NO IN TIME FOOD TAKING, NOT SLEEPING IN TIME, NOT SPENDING TIME WITH FAMILY AND NOT TAKING REQUIRED REST ETC ALL WILL BE SUFFERED BY US.. WHO WILL CARE OF THESE… OUR REQUEST FOR EXTENSION IS ALL SOLID REASONABLE – AND MUST NEED AN EXTENSION OF FILING DATE TILL 30TH NOVEMBER ONLY. I REQUEST ALL THE ASSOCIATIONS STRONGLY TO BE MADE UNDERSTAND THESE PROBLEMS TO THE CONCERNED MINISTRY.. THANK YOU.

  18. Sudhir says:

    Government should extend due date of filing TAR and Income Tax return permanently to 30th November. Due date of filing TAR to 30th September is too early. Process of TAR is more complex now then earlier as a professional is required to finalise accounts, prepare tax audit report, preparing TAR in Jawa Utility, Upload in Income Tax Website, filing of Income Tax Return and now generation of UDIN.
    It is very difficult to do complete this process for a firm doing TAR for 20/25 Firms in 30 days time i.e. within 30 days of closure of income tax filing due date for individuals.
    In view of above Hon”ble Finance Minister and Member of CBDT are requested to extend due date of filing TAR and Income Tax Return to 30th November for this and all following years.

  19. Rajendra Trivedi says:

    Dear sir.Due date for tax audit must be 30.11.2019, So audit report & Itr can be file smoothly with care of rules.
    Also without audit cases are pending for filing due to penalty…heavy rain..and flood in major part of country..
    Also in favour of Govt penalties must be remove from 1000 to 10000..Govt can charge interest..on late filling of without audit cases and audit cases..afterall it will remove bed impression of Govt due to GST harrasment to bussiness and industrialist and professional class tax payers from last year.
    Non audit individual return is appx 60% pending some people will drop to file their return which is liable to nominal tax due to penalty Rs.1000 to 10000..
    As per following reson..
    1.
    In our under developing country..70% of tax payers are middle class or under nominal chargeble income so penalty will be decrese tax payers or let them go to adjust thier profit in non taxable limit..this will effect to income of tax for Govt..and will be turn tax payers make lazy or drop to file their return.indirectly it will decrease
    taxcollection..from moddle class..having pan..and doing small bussiness.ssi unit..or very small scale industries..or work from house and educational & other professional who are liable to small amount of tax within 5 or 10 lakh of net income.
    2.
    Due to GST..GSTR9..ROC..Tax audit..due date all the practioner are to much busy…cant able to give full attention due correction in utilities to prepair return and audit..under high pressure of work load..it is highly recommend that due date must be extend up to 30.11.19.
    3.As Govt known major part of country was under struggle of heavy rain and flood…so most of assesee was busy to save their life..bussiness..property..manpower..as well as books of account..and collecting require documentary proof for filing return ..during all August
    month and also they lost sept for pick up their routine work..so..non audited induvidual and tax audit return must be allow to file up to 30.11.2019.without any type of penalty..if it is necessary interest may charge..but penalty must be remove.
    I hope finance minister or central board will take quick decision..
    It will be favourable for Govt..CA..Accountant..bussness class..professional and ssi units..and all other tax payer’s.
    This all will be happy if relaxation will be allow as per demand and will be favourable for BJP Govt..for election also.
    Thanks.

  22. C V PROMOD says:

    Hon.F.M. and CBDT I with folded hands request your good offices to extend the due date for filing tax audit returns from 31 Sep 2019 to 31 Oct 2019. Now only the returns of non audit cases returns have been filed. We need time to file tax audit returns in order to follow the prescribed rules of ICAI. And in view of Banks strike from 26 and 27 and Sat and Sun being bank holiday

  23. Mamta says:

    A very large no. of Accountants, CA & Tax Professional are busy under high pressure to complete the work. They are working under tension. Due to this there might be errors in filling. If respected madam announce date extension for at least 1 month they will fell relax and return will also free of errors. They will heartily thanks to her

  24. HSV BABU says:

    EVERY YEAR WE ARE FACING SAME PROBLEM, WHEN GST ENTERS PROBLEMS INCREASED. THE INCOME TAX RETURN SHOULD BE ALWAYS KEPT IN LAST PRIORITY AFTER FILING OTHER STATUTORY RETURNS -BECAUSE ALL ARE APPLICABLE TO SAME BUSINESS. WE BEG THIS YEAR TO EXTEND THE TAX AUDIT FILING DATES TILL 30TH NOV 19- BUT NEXT YEAR LET THE MINISTRY THINK WISELY TO KEEP INCOME TAX RETURN FOR 44 AB AUDIT TO GIVE ONLY LAST PRIORITY OF FILING DATE SO THAT OTHER STATUTORY RETURNS CAN BE FINALISED PEACEFULLY AND CORRECTLY AND THE DATA CAN ALSO BE SEEN MATCHED EQUALLY WITH ALL STATUTORY ANGLES.

  25. jitendra zatakia says:

    The due date for tax audit and also for companies must be extended to 30th November as there wil be Navratri in first week of October and Diwali festivals in last week of October 2016
    Please extend immediately for all tax payers please

  26. Sitesh Kr Jha says:

    It is horrible to file by 30.09.2019 due to reasons mentioned above and further reason of giving so much additional information particularly in the case of companies like all share capital of past, loans, properties and investments etc. In this additional information rather lot of clarity / discussion is needed. Hence I fully support that date should be extended minimum till 30.11.2019.

  27. V.K.GOEL says:

    I rarely say time should be extended. But this time it is horrible practically impossible to manage by 30.09.2019 due to reasons mentioned above and further reason of giving so much additional information particularly in the case of companies like all share capital of past, loans, properties and investments etc. In this additional information rather lot of clarity / discussion is needed. Hence I fully support that date should be extended minimum till 15.11.2019.

    1. D K Sharma says:

      I appreciate the efforts of ITBA & AGFTC for representing CA’s and Tax Consultants before FM and CBDT. and request that Tax Audit date & Due date for filing ITR by corporates and other audit cases should be extended upto 30th Nov.

  28. Jagdish sharma says:

    इनकम टैक्स ऑडिट को 30/10/2019 की कृपा करे कारण no 1 gst का टर्न ओवर मिलान करना no 2 gst 3b का मिलना है no 3 in put or out put का मिलना है no 3 match or miss match को मिलान करना है इतना काम 1 महीने मैं भी नहीं हो ता है इससे पहले August मैं नॉन ऑडिट return मैं थे अब आप ही बताओ क्या अब 1महीने मैं टैक्स ऑडिट हो जायेगा क्या so plz as soom as extent tax audit 30/10/2019 कर दो साब हमारी रोज़ी रोटी पर आंच नहीं आएगी

  29. CA.Prabhakar.G says:

    GST commitment of annual returns and audit is disturbing the time schs. of profs, since June 30th. Because of this deadline individual tax returns have been side lined. Then july 31st went off with much more confusion whether to give importance to gst returns or individual returns. some how individual returns extended to 31st Aug. Then again take up gst work but again postponed to nov 30th. Because of this neither individual returns have been justified nor gst returns. Both are pending. Now sep 30 ROC and tax audits , which one to be given priority because both are important and delay of both are expensive to the client for no fault of them. This is all because improper planning and confusion. It is happening like signal failure and traffic jam in cross roads.This year Govt should extend the dates comfortably so that the profs can work with free mind without any tension so that the good quality work should come out. In future also all the statutory dead lines should be planned thoroughly so that one date should not be clashed with the other date. If necessary they should take advice of the prof bodies who are ultimately facing the issues.

  30. anil says:

    Govt should see the fact & situation. Extension is Must, because due dates for various compliance are overlapping. Hence this is effecting health & personal life. Govt officer get 3 to 4 months for audit / assessement then why we are not getting that much time.

  31. MANOJ says:

    First of All we appreciate the Income Tax Department Work for smooth working of website on 31st August 2019. I request to kindly extend the due date of Filing TAR and Return at least by one month. I further request to extend the non audit case due date also for further one month. Problem is genuine. A timely extension required so that we can work peacefully and with more efficiency.
    Jai Hind Jai Bharat

  32. SUDHIR says:

    100% RIGHT BOSS DATE SHOULD BE EXTENDED UPTO 15TH NOVEMBER 2019. AS ALL PROFESSIONAL ARE HAVING HUGE WORK PRESSURE TO CLOSE THE BOOKS OF ACCOUNT IN VARIOUS ANGLE . SCUH AS GST /INCOME TAX , ADVANCE TAX …

  33. CA VIJAY AGGARWAL says:

    IT IS MOST ESSENTIAL TO EXTEND THE DUE DATE OF TAX AUDIT FROM 30.09.2019 TO AT LEAST 31.10.2019 FOR NICE WORK WHICH IS AGAIN IN THE INTEREST OF GOVT AND INCOME TAX PAYERS. THERE IS EXTREME PRESSURE ON PROFESSIONALS FOR GST WORK, ADVANCE TAX WORK, ASSESSMENT WORK AND IN ADDITION TO IT TAX AUDIT WORK. ALL SUCH PRESSURE CAN NOT BE GENUINELY BORNE BY PROFESSIONALS. HENCE IT IS HUMBLE REQUEST TO GOVT.AUTHORITIES TO EXTEND THE DATE OF TAX AUDIT FOR ASSESSMENT YEAR 2019-20

  34. Alok Saha says:

    A reasonable time is required to audit the books of account of the assessee u/s 44AB of the Income Tax Act, 1961. After implementation of GST, Companies Act 2013 and other standards & statutory requirements, the responsibility is much more on the auditors now. Due to postponement of ITR (non-tax audit) due date and GST audit and annual return date, time left for tax audit for the financial year 2018-19 was hardly one month. Hence for the sake of revenue to obtain true and correct audit reports, the due date for filing both tax audit report and related ITR should be extended to at least 15th November 2019 immediately without any further delay. Any sort of hurry in completing the audit in such a short span of time may jeopardize the audit quality.

  35. ACCOUNT MANAGEMENTS says:

    Date of Audit Report & Income tax return filling for those whose books are audited should be extended,. Because Accountant & C A are under huge pressure due to burden of GST work.Please extended date 31.11.2019

    1. Pravin baheti says:

      Yes,100 agreed date should be extended 30th November There are durga pooja,Dushera & Diwali in october if it is extended 30th November all professional will work without pressure of mind & error free Request to Madamji to early announcement of extension pls order should be immediately

  36. ACCOUNT MANAGEMENTS says:

    Date of Audit Report & Income tax return filling for those whose books are audited should be extended,. Because Accountant & C A are under huge pressure due to burden of GST work.

  37. Ashok Gusain says:

    he request for extension of filing date is a wise one and admittable. above all the mentioned reasons, it is also should note that every year we auditors will suffer lot of work in filing of gst, roc, gst annual and other statutory related works with lot of tension. 1. The tensions are the assessees were not produce their books data in time due to they dont have their accountants, they will follow only gst related data and rest of data they ignore. 2. most of the data not available like purchases with them which we have take data from gstr 2 returns and to ask for bills from suppliers 3. Also the auditors should work for the filing work wheather the assessee pays him or not to defend his blames on us. 4. The annual return of gstr 9 is extended but till that date we were engaged our time in doing only gst i.e. till 31.8.19 . If we were known the gst 9 will extend till 30.11 we would have worked for income tax work for tax audit etc..without engaging in gst works. 5. All the related professionals will suffer and tired of work every year in this months junction omitting personal entertainments like festival of dasara and diwali.. As per my opinion the tax audit filing date should be always allowed till 30th November of every year..
    Hope the concerned ministry may understand these practical problems…

  39. Ramesh Kumar says:

    A humble request to Finance Minister and CBDT as non audit return date extended from 31st July to 31st Aug. considering this Audit date should be extended at-least 2 months

  40. rajendra ramniklal kanabar says:

    Extension of Due Date is utmost necessary, looking from various reasons.(1) Delayed ITR Forms (2) Frequent changes in Schema (3) Additional data required to be feeded in ITR (4) TAR being matched with GSTR9/9C, wherein, GST Returns are itself highly complicated as well as no modification permitted (5) Flood & Heavy rains in different states (6) Difference between two Due dates.

    – Extension should be at least of 1 Month

  41. hariprasad gundala says:

    kindly extend tax audit due date to 31st October 2019 as we have lost one month (august 2018) in filing non audit cases.
    So Kindly extend TAR due date well in advance , that helps us to concentrate on all aspects of audit n to submit quality audit report with satisfaction

  42. Anjali says:

    A very large no of accountants, C.A. and tax professional all over India are under high pressure to file tax audit returns and ITR. This year also ITR Forms have been modified.Due date for ITR of non-audit cases was extended till 31st Aug.. Date of annual GST Return for FY was extended late in Aug. Due to which also time consumed in this return. Most area are badly effected by flood.There are also two GST return compliance in Sept. If date is not extended till 20th Sept. Pressure on these people will be heavily increased. If announcement of extension in last of Sept will no use. Kindly extend the date latest by 20-9-2019.

  43. Ca maneesh k sharma says:

    I request the worthy fm to extend due date of audit and tar for genuine hardship for profession and assessees. As the date of other returns have been extended. These returns are much more complex and needs a lot of points and discussions so i futher request to extend it at the earliest

  44. Hasham Makwani says:

    DUE DATE MUST BE EXTENT TILL 30.11.2019, SO AUDIT REPORTS AND ITR CAN BE FILED, ALSO WITHOUT AUDIT CASES ARE STILL PENDING FOR FILLING, ALSO PENALTIES MUST BE REMOVE FROM RS 1000 TO 10000, INTEREST PER MONTH 1 % IS CHARGED IS OK.

    1. Sri Prakash says:

      Sep and Oct are festive months for We Indians. Most of the Festivals (Like Ganesh Puja, Durga Puja, Dashahara, Depawali etc.) falls in two months. We professionals are engaged in preparing income tax / gst / ROC and other compliance work and some time could not attend family Puja. The situation is same whether professionals are in practice or in service. Government should take care of this and extend due date of filing TAR and Income Tax return permanently to 30th November. Due date of filing TAR to 30th September is to early. Process of TAR is more complex now then earlier as a professional is required to finalise accounts, prepare tax audit report, preparing TAR in Jawa Utility, Upload in Income Tax Website, filing of Income Tax Return and now generation of UDIN.

      It is very difficult to do complete this process for a firm doing TAR for 20/25 Firms in 30 days time i.e. within 30 days of closure of income tax filing due date for individuals. In view of above Hon”ble Finance Minister and Member of CBDT are requested to extend due date of filing TAR and Income Tax Return to 30th November for this and all following year.

  45. MITHILESH says:

    Date of Audit Report & Income tax return filling for those whose books are audited should be extended,. Because Accountant & C A are under huge pressure due to burden of GST work .

  46. Jyoti Biswas says:

    Yes, 100% agreed. Date should be extended till 15th November There are Dushera and Diwali in October. If it is extended till 15th November, all professional will work without pressure of mind and error free. Request to madam ji to early announcement of extension

  47. Ravi Kumar says:

    Yes, it is very essential to extend tax audit report minimum 2 months. The Dushhera puja is starting from last week of September and incessant rain affected our work.

  48. Kamlesh says:

    ITR 2,3,5,6 चेंज हुए है। अभी तक ICAI ने डेट एक्सटेंशन की रिक्वेस्ट भी नही दी है। और किसी ने कोर्ट में केस भी नही लगाया है। पर आज के बाद स्थिति चेंज होगी 😟

  49. munawwar says:

    yes due date of 44AB should be extend upto 30.11.2019. Useful if extend early otherwise pressure will same definitely mistakes will happen during filing of ITR

  50. Praveen says:

    Sir, It is genuine hardships to complete till 30 September. We were busy till August in non ITR filling,TDS return filling and GST return filling. Format of audit ITR has been changed this year also. In September also filed GST returns
    Nos. Of non audit ITR has increased
    Many area of country are affected by flood. So extension of 2 month is essential.There will be no revenue loss as interest may be charged. Request to respected Nirmla Sitaraman ji to pass an order of extension. I hope she is kind enough like late Sushma ji and will pass the order.

  51. Manoj says:

    Kindly extend the due date for TAR and filing of ITRs atleast by 31st of October 2019. Kindly announce at the earliest. Non Audit case due date also may be extended up to 30th September. Professional should have sufficient Time to work without panic. We appreciate Income Tax Department work for improvement in website and friendly approach. Jai Hind Jai Bharat. Proud to be an Indian.

  52. Nivedita Bhandari says:

  53. azhar says:

    Thank you sir for your representation for extension extension very much needed still clients not in positions due to flood in north karnataka and kerela . Please look into the matter and extend the same. We are very much thankful to you madam.

  54. UNI BUILDING says:

    I really appreciate the request placed by AGFTC and ITBA to IT Ministry for the needful extention of time for audited accounts. The quoted reasons are fair and acceptable. We should be happy to see that at least in the entire nation we have few associations who looks into common problems and works towards solutions.

  55. Sudhir Kalsekar says:

    Date of income tax audit should be extended till 30th November . And same should declare in advance so we can work smoothly without any error.

  56. Sudhir Kalsekar says:

    Agreed…. Date of income tax audit should be extended till 30th November . And same should declare in advance so we can work smoothly without any error.

  57. CA BISWAJIT BASU says:

    Sirs, I personally appreciate the view taken for extension of time for submission of Tax Audit Report under Income Tax and the submission of Income Tax Returns by the assessees comes under the purview and applicability of S. 44AB. In fact the tax audit works now requires enormous checking and cross checking of different facts and figures and facts, especially with the figures submitted by such assessees under GST Act. We shall be highly obliged and thankful to Hon’ble Finance Minister and CBDT, if they be kind enough to consider the hardship of the assessees and the Tax Auditors as well and kindly extend the last date for submission of Tax Audit Report and Income Tax Returns for the related parties till 15th November, 2019. I also convey my heartfelt thanks to AGFTC and ITBA who taken a right step to sort out the problems of the Assessees and the Tax Payers.

  58. Pravin says:

    Extension of date is a must..GST work tax audit , statutory audit has become too difficult for any CA, Now in view of the details to be filed in 3 cd is bulky. They are to be checked and cross checked, which is taking lot of time. 30th Nov 2019 will be ok.

  59. JAI KISHAN says:

    Hon’able FM should extended date till 15th Nov.-2019. ITR of non-audit have completed till 31st Aug. So it is very reasonable to extend till 15th Nov. Interest may be charged

  60. CA S.S.GULATI says:

    Extension in due date from Sept.2019 to 15th Nov.2019 is very much desirable in view of the facts narrated in the letter. There is increased requirement of various legislature more particularly GST. There would not be any loss to the revenue if the extension is granted with the condition that self assessment tax if any should be paid by Sept.2019

  61. SARVJEET SINGH says:

    After implementation of GST date of Non Audit ITR filing upto 31 August and In case of Others Upto 31 October every year should be incorporated itself.
    Any extension beyond above may be demanded as per particular situation in that year.
    Thanks to AGFTC for raising issue well in time.

  62. GULAB ROHIT says:

    DUE DATE MUST BE EXTENT TILL 30.11.2019, SO AUDIT REPORTS AND ITR CAN BE FILED, ALSO WITHOUT AUDIT CASES ARE STILL PENDING FOR FILLING, ALSO PENALTIES MUST BE REMOVE FROM RS 1000 TO 10000, INTEREST PER MONTH 1 % IS CHARGED IS OK.

  63. Mahesh Mehra says:

    Be efficient and stop begging the government to extend the due date. The CA students suffer due to this extension as the Principal some times doesnot allow leave to the student because the dead line has been extended and on top of that he will not leave the article untill and unless the work is over.

    So, please stop begging this shows our inefficiency

    1. HSV BABU says:

      If you consider this as begging., how the ministry understand your efficiency of your work towards the government, are you loyal in calculations of tax payments at genuine rates? So they ought to understand the professionals practical problems also….

  64. HSV BABU says:

    The request for extension of filing date is a wise one and admittable. above all the mentioned reasons, it is also should note that every year we auditors will suffer lot of work in filing of gst, roc, gst annual and other statutory related works with lot of tension. 1. The tensions are the assessees were not produce their books data in time due to they dont have their accountants, they will follow only gst related data and rest of data they ignore. 2. most of the data not available like purchases with them which we have take data from gstr 2 returns and to ask for bills from suppliers 3. Also the auditors should work for the filing work wheather the assessee pays him or not to defend his blames on us. 4. The annual return of gstr 9 is extended but till that date we were engaged our time in doing only gst i.e. till 31.8.19 . If we were known the gst 9 will extend till 30.11 we would have worked for income tax work for tax audit etc..without engaging in gst works. 5. All the related professionals will suffer and tired of work every year in this months junction omitting personal entertainments like festival of dasara and diwali.. As per my opinion the tax audit filing date should be always allowed till 30th November of every year..
    Hope the concerned ministry may understand these practical problems…
