Dear Sir,

Sub. : Extension of Due Date in respect of filing ITR

First and foremost we would like to introduce ourselves as Central Gujarat Chamber of Tax Consultants (CGCTC) – A Tax Professional body having 300 members. The membership is comprising of Advocates, Chartered Accountants, Tax Professionals and Corporate Entities from Central Gujarat i.e. Vadodara, Anand, Nadiad, Bharuch, Narmada, Godhra, Dahod, Kheda etc.

Sir, your office is well aware that Due date for filing ITR for A.Y. 2018-19 in respect of Audited entities as well as working partners is 30.09.2018 and for Assesses other than mentioned above is 31.07.2018.

From the current Assessment Year non filing of ITR before due date will invite late fee u/s. 234F of Rs. 1,000/5,000/10,000 as the case may be.

Sir, In the interest of Assesses as large as well as of Tax Professionals, we seek extension of due date for 2 Months i.e. 30.09.2018 and 30.11.2018 respectively on following difficulties.

  • The Schema for ITRs have been updated and amended till last moment i.e. till July, 2018.
  • Business Community of entire country is stuck in reconciling figures between various GST Returns filed and being first year the Taxpayer are facing very hard to reconcile the same.
  • Moreover more than 70% of the country is going through hard phase of water logs due to heavy rain and flood.
  • Due to lack of cleaniness and dual seasons various diseases have spread out in the country.
  • Electricity disturbances and downloading of 26AS problems are also creating more hurdles and adding fire to the flame.
  • Due date for filing of TDS Return of 1st Quarter is also due on 31.07.2018. It is finding difficult to meet two deadlines at one time.

In the above mentioned circumstances Tax payers and Professionals are not only finding difficult but seems impossible to meet due date for filing ITRs by all Assessees and which has led to tremendous stress amongst Taxpaying communities in the country.

Therefore your office is requested to kindly extend due date for 2 Months i.e. 30.09.2018 and 30.11.2018 respectively.

Without prejudice to what is stated above your office is requested to defer late fee for two months.

For your kind action the Chamber may remain obliged.

Regards,

Kinjal K Shah

(Hon. Secretary)
