The following issues faced by taxpayers in the new income tax portal while uploading the Income-tax returns:
Part-A :- General Circumstances
Common offline utilities to file ITR released around 01.07.2022. The due date for filing of TDS, TCS returns for Q-4 2021-22 was 31StMay 2022. On filing of TDS, TCS returns credit to be gets reflected by 15.06.2022. There is a chance for rectification and also required minimum 10 — 15 days time, that means finally we can get all of our information by 30.06.2022, by the time TDS returns for Quarter – 1, Financial year 2022-23 A. Y 2023-2024 are also required to be filed by 31.07.2022. Usually we get only 30 days, to file most of the returns after considering all financial transactions and other information provided by Income Tax department (26AS & AIS).
Part-B :- Tecnical glitches
1. While trying to file Income tax returns ‘Log in page’ Taking absurd time to appear’ Many a time exit without the reason from the login page so that we have to carry out the whole exercise once again.
2. Issues in downloading 26-AS, AIS: There are issues which arise in downloading 26- AS, AIS of taxpayers, In many cases, the information is incorrect, in many cases the data considered more than once and data is not matching with the correct positions of the assessee, which creates confusion to the assessee and Consultants
3. Website takes lot of time after validation of return and thereafter error appears, after correction of the error, again required to be validate the return and same exercise to be done once again and there after message comes ‘returns could not be uploaded’, and finally able to filed return but taking lot of time to file a single return.
4. Registration of Digital Signature (DSC), the portal says “something went wrong”.
With reference to all the facts and circumstances before your Honour, you are requested to extend the time limit for filing Income tax returns u/s 139 (1) under the Income Tax Act, 1961 for non audit cases, salaried employees and others by 1 month till 31st August 2022.
