Every professional of this country must remember what they were doing at 5.22 PM on 26th July 2018. They were busy with calculations, figures and looking towards their wristwatch about the probable time to leave their offices in these busy moments of ITR filing. It was an active day, but an extension of two weeks was in the air as many quarters at social media suggesting the same. Ministry of Finance in a very casual approach tweeted at 5,22 PM as introduction of announcement of extension of ITR filing .

5:22 AM – 26 Jul 2018

The Due Date for filing of Income Tax Returns for Assessment Year 2018-19 is 31.07.2018 for certain categories of taxpayers.

  1. The question appeared for the brainstorms “what’s this Certain Category of Taxpayers. Many tried to take a glimpse of  section 139 of the Income tax Act but at the same moment, another tweet appeared from Ministry of Finance almost at the same time at  22 PM

5:22 AM – 26 Jul 2018  

Ministry of Finance‏ Verified account @FinMinIndia

Upon consideration of the matter, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) extends the ‘Due Date’ for filing of Income Tax Returns from 31st July, 2018 to 31st August, 2018 in respect of the said categories of taxpayers.

So now, the news of extension was clear. However the term “certain categories” of tax payers have not taken well by the professionals throughout the country. A total confusion erupted at social media because of this term. Two tweets resulted in 3000 replies. Out of which 95% of the tweets were questioning the term “Certain Categories.” The re-tweets, what’s-app, sms messages started emerging communicating to the masses with the questionable term of certain/ said categories. Everyone relaxed with the extension but the term “certain categories” was hammering them. The term “certain categories” was not drawn from the in Income tax Act. There is nothing in the Income Tax Act which defines any categories. The word used in section 139 is the case of any other assessee other than audit cases, the 31st day of July of the assessment year but the replacement of a term “certain categories’ created a chaos at social media and 100% of the thankful messages from the professional world synchronized with a query “What’s the definition of certain categories.”

However, Ministry of Finance didn’t clarify the word ‘certain categories.’ There was no need of it as it was quiet simple to understand that the date for filing have been extended by a month to 31st August 2018 for those whose returns were due on 31st July. The questions raised by the tweeter followers were remained questions. Piyush Goyal has just saved himself by not tweeting from his handle and all blame fall on MOF handle. Otherwise there could be repetition of trolling like Sushma Swaraj. Recently, she has become a victim of online abuse despite being a fierce lawmaker and actively involved in rescuing several Indians in trouble abroad, Sushma ji finds herself at the receiving end of vicious trolling. Piyush Goyal was lucky that way. Otherwise from so many years, it was only the directions of various High Courts that the ministry had given extensions. He worked smartly and granted extension well in time that too for a month. However, his good deed of doubled extension eventually becomes bad as it followed by thousands of questions.

Not only the social media, the press also started it circulating with the word certain categories and interpreted it that the same is not extended for all.

The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has extended the due date for filing of Income Tax Returns from July 31, 2018, to August 31, 2018, for certain categories of taxpayers.

Income Tax Return Due Date extended to 31/08/2018

The messages from various sites were also questioning the status of categories. Such as

In its latest announcement, the Ministry of Finance has extended the due date for filing the income tax return (ITR) from July 31 to August 31, 2018. The date has been extended for certain categories only. The ministry gave this information through its Twitter handle.

However, it has not specified the categories for which the extension has been given.However during this transition period, there was a free for all reactions from every quarter of the country. The allegations were made on the Ministry Babus to Finance Minister, who himself a merit holder Chartered accountant for creating this unwanted controversy. .

Just see how this post created havoc among the professionals.

Plz don’t get confused as the last date for ITRs Audited is already 30th Sept2018. And Extension is for all those: if a person whose total income exceeds the exemption limit (Unaudited) is liable to furnish ITR within the due date

BANSHEEDHAR MISHRA‏ @banshdharm 21 hours ago Replying to @FinMinIndia

In stead of using “said category” “certain category” the finance ministry should clearly indicate who can avail this extended date.

Those u r getting confuse with the “certain categories of taxpayers” didn’t read property as it is clearly mentioned,, certain categories whose last date is 31.7.18 has been extended. If it would be all categories then company /tax audit whose date was 30.09.18 will be 31.8.18

It is very clear. For those whose due date was 31 Jul, it is extended to 31 Aug.

Jainis‏ @Jainis007 23 hours ago Replying to @FinMinIndia

The way i read the order is “there are certain categories of “tax payers” whose due date “is” 31st July”. The category broadly includes all the individuals, hufs and firms to whom audit is not applicable. The order further states “due date of is extended to 31st Aug“.

Jainis‏ @Jainis007 23 hours ago

But then again, why to mention “categories” if it is for all the assesses whose due date of filing is 31st July. One whose due date is 30th sept is anyways not affected by this order

VINAY SHARMA‏ @vinaybly2017 23 hours ago Replying to @FinMinIndia
