No Extension of Date for Filing of Returns due by 30th September for Assessment Year 2015-16 for Certain Categories of Assessees Including Companies, and Firms and, Individuals Engaged in Proprietary Business/Profession etc whose Accounts are required to be Audited; Taxpayers are Advised to file their Returns Well in Time to Avoid Last Minute Rush

Income-tax returns for Assessment Year 2015-16 for certain categories of assessees viz companies, firms and individuals engaged in proprietary business/profession etc whose accounts are required to be audited, are to be filed by 30th September, 2015. The audit report is also required to be filed by the said date.

The Government has received representations from various stakeholders seeking extension of date for filing of returns and tax audit reports beyond 30th September 2015. The reasons cited are delay in notifying the returns and related delay in availability of forms on the e-filing website.

The matter has been considered. Income-Tax Returns Forms 3,4,5,6 and 7 which are used by the above mentioned categories of assessees were notified for Assessment Year 2015-16 on 29.07.2015. The forms were e-enabled and were available on the e-filing website of the Department from 7th August 2015 giving enough time for compliance. The changes made to these forms are not extensive as compared to the earlier years. Further taxpayers entering into either international transactions or specified domestic transactions are required to file their returns by 30th November 2015 only.

After consideration of all facts, it has been decided that the last date for filing of returns due by 30th September 2015 will not be extended. Taxpayers are advised to file their returns well in time to avoid last minute rush.

    Why the ruling government having this much stubborn against the tax payers, I came to Know that the CBDT has filed writ in SC, against the High court orders favoured to tax payers, the govt MUST come to know that, more of the assessees and professionals in taxations are educated, who were supported to ruling party and they can change the fate of the Govt. Keeping in the mind, I request to FM to advice OR order to CBTD to do the good work for people. All are must know we are in the great country INDIA famous for democracy. Hnbl FM, Pls Understand the technical problems in filing returns in short period. Ple……………………………..ase extend the due date.

  15. M B BANNI says:

    AY: 2014-15 returns were filed in Dece-14 (with extended date for 3 months i.e. total nine month time) Where as within next 180 days of the finance year the assesee should file IT return that to along with Audit Report. Most of the CA as not ready to take the audit because of huge Back log and overloaded work. In such circumstances the editable assesee where to go and how to get the books audited? One more surprising thing that the TDS Form-16 are not issued by many Govt & Semi Govt Department. In absence of TDS and in absence of correct TDS and Tax details how an assess can finalize his or her tax The liability ? The Tax payers have kept the books ready but no auditor is ready to take it for audit. Because of short of time. This is really a hanging soured on the heads of tax payers. The H’ble Finance minister should know the practical problems facing by the tax payers and let the H’ble FM take care of tax payers and look immediately in the matter which is very serious and important one. Let his good office make the tax payers convenient to pay appropriate tax and discharge the liberally towards the nation. The suitable extension of time is must and the action in the connection from CTDC and Finance Department is much more important and applicable to extent the time limit by the tax payers. The demand for extension of time by the tax payers is reasonable and necessary at this movement.
