Deductions in respect of certain incomes not to be allowed unless return is filed by the due date

The existing provisions contained in the section 80AC of the Act provide that no deduction would be admissible under section 80-IA or section 80-IAB or section 80-IB or section 80-IC or section 80-ID or section 80-IE, unless the return of income by the assessee is furnished on or before the due date specified under sub-section (1) of section 139 of the Act. This burden is not cast upon assesses claiming deductions under several other similar provisions.

In view of the above, it is proposed to extend the scope of section 80AC to provide that the benefit of deduction under the entire class of deductions under the heading “C.—Deductions in respect of certain incomes” in Chapter VIA shall not be allowed unless the return of income is filed by the due date.

This amendment will take effect, from 1st April, 2018 and will, accordingly, apply in relation to the assessment year 2018-19 and subsequent assessment years.

Extract of Clause 23 of Finance Bill 2018

Clause 23 of the Bill seeks to amend section 80AC of the Income-tax Act relating to deduction not to be allowed unless return furnished.

The said section provides that where, in computing the total income of an assessee of the previous year relevant to the assessment year commencing on the 1st day of April, 2006 or any subsequent assessment year, any deduction admissible under section 80-IA or section 80-IAB or section 80-IB or section 80-IC or section 80-ID or section 80-IE, shall be allowed to him only if he furnishes a return of his income for such assessment year on or before the due date specified under sub-section (1) of section 139.

It is proposed to substitute the said section so as to provide that in computing the total income of an assessee of the previous year relevant to the assessment year commencing on or after the 1st day of April, 2018, deduction under any other provisions of Chapter VIA under the heading “C.—Deductions in respect of certain incomes” shall be allowed only if the return is filed within the due date specified under sub-section (1) of section 139.

This amendment will take effect from 1st April, 2018 and will, accordingly, apply in relation to the assessment year 201 8-2019 and subsequent years.
