Hon’ble Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman Ji
Union Finance Minister,
Govt. of India
NEW DELHI – 110001

Subject:  Memorandum for Extension of Due Dates till 28TH Feb.  2022 for filing of ITRs.

We have been constantly putting forward the grievances of our members in respect of the New Income Tax Portal since its launch and even though the Portal is functional and some of the issues have been sorted out but still the Portal is having multiple glitches which has resulted difficulties for many persons and taxpayers are unable to file their Income Tax Returns. It is also pertinent to note that not only the ITR of Companies,  Firms,  Business  Income,  TAR  etc. are  facing  issues  but  also returns of Individuals, HUF and Executor to the Estate are not being able to be filed due to some reason or the other which is also consuming considerable time and effort of the tax professionals.

Therefore we humbly  pray an extension up to 28th February, 2022 requested to be granted. Needless to mention the pandemic is not yet over which has also played a crucial role in non-functioning of the offices of professionals and taxpayers.  The number of staff available is much lesser due to Corona restrictions including non- functioning of Local trains.

On behalf of our Association, we request your kind intervention for the extension of the due dates of filing of returns at least till 28th February, 2022 and also your help to early resolution of pending problems faced by the Taxpayers in the New Income Tax Portal.

Memorandum for Extension of Due Dates for filing of ITRs

We look forward to an early consideration of our above prayers.

With humble regards,

Adv Kamal Kumar Jain  Narayan Jain

    Hon’ble Finance Minister,

    I write this letter to draw your attention to the discrimination that has been done thru various provisions of The Income Tax Act, 1961.

    1) Section 115 BAC: The small traders having income under the head ” Income from business or profession” are required to file Form No.10-IE, whereas other individuals need not file such form. Further, this class of assessees (small traders) can exercise the option to switch over only once in a lifetime.

    You would appreciate that those small traders have a sale turnover of a couple of crores and a profit margin of 5-10 % earning Rs.5-15 lakhs. They have tremendous pressure of survival due to pandemics. They are earning much less than those employed by corporate houses and multinational companies, where they get a salary much higher, can exercise the option to switch over to the old regime of taxation and new regime without filing any form AND EVERY YEAR.

    You have failed to appreciate the fact that they are self-employed and beyond they give jobs to 4-5 persons, an accountant, salesmen, office attendees, etc. They are not job eaters but job providers to lesser unskilled persons who could not get jobs in corporate and multinational companies.

    In fact, they deserve more stimulatory steps, more liberties, and space for freedom. They are running their business with many restrictions like cash transactions, TDS/TCS compliance, and many more

    What is the justification for this discrimination? What is their fault – They are self-employed and job providers IS IT THEIR FAULT?

    2) Section 44AB- TAX AUDIT: The very objective of this section is killed by the present regime. Once it was considered a simple and much-desired provision of taxation. First by Late Jaitely and now by the present FM, this piece of the section is made complicated year on year. It has become very difficult to understand this section. Here again, you have taken away the space for freedom and it acts against the small traders.

    There are various other amendments in the Income Tax Act that this Government has introduced that show their enmity towards the business class – Here I mean traders and businessmen – not industrialists like Ambanis and Adanis.

    Our PM always talks about “ease in doing business” and ” Government has no business to do business”.
    How these lines are becoming superfluous and election jhumala.

    Could you show any relief that you have given to traders and businessmen even during the tough time like covid pandemics except for some extention in the timeline of numerous compliance? Every small relief is loaded with conditions like less than 5% of cash transactions etc.

    I am leaving GST for the tax authorities to do the MANTHAN.

    Ending this letter, not with any request- the government has developed the DNA not heed to any request. For that, they need a Rakesh Tikait.

    DO MANTHAN, IF FEEL ANY REGRET, CORRECT YOURSELF.

    JAI HIND
    CA Hitesh K Chandarana

    Tax practitioners and tax payers are fool’s. Only the Finance Ministry is right. The most knowledgeable Revenue Secretary pleased his boss, the Hon FM, by certifying that the IT portal is working smoothly. All the users are struggling and our hero says, All is well. All is well… My foot. You are unwell.

  3. CA OM PRAKASH MODI says:

    our FM is only allegating to ca, tax professionals and assessees, but what about introduction of AIS & TIS , which introduced from 01.11.2021, was it right time ?
    is it any type of justice to ca, tax professionals and assessees?
    who is responsible for late introduction of utilities and thier updation?
    so many things to say……..
