    I am super senit, not liable to pay advance tax. I can paythe whole payable tax before the last date of ITR submission. Now that this date is extended to 30 September 2021 can I pay payable tax before 30 sept or have I to estimate the payable tax and pay before 31 July. If I pay after 31 July and before 30 Sep then I woudld be charged penalty for late payment. Kindl advise.

  2. V Sekar says:

    TDS paid to cbdt for rent, paid through HDFC Bank in FY 20 – 21 first quarter, is yet to reflect in 26AS in Chennai Circle! Who is responsible for such long delay? When will credit show up in 26As of AY 21-22? Chasing has become a bug bear!

  3. Sasikumar says:

    No extension of time limit for investment of Capital gains under section 54 is seen permitted inspite of representation by various forums

    Thanks to the information
    What about 20-21 asst. Year Return of income now to be filed before 31-5-2021 on account of difficulties due to pandemic

  8. P.K.Kataria says:

    No consideration has been given to the filing of form 15 H as per last year by extending the validity of form upto 30 06 2021 as visit to Bank in the present situation is very much disturbing and sr citizens avoid net banking.

  9. Varsha says:

    There is no mention of extension of due date of Tax audit report where the Transfer pricing accountant report is filed. The due date earlier also was 31st October, which remains the same.
