The Central Board of Direct Taxes,
Subject : Request for extension of due dates for ITR and Audit
We are proud members of the National Association of Tax Professionals (NATP) which incorporated with a vision to work as a bridge between Tax Payers and Government for smooth, safe and secure, direct and indirect tax compliances. NATP consists of members, coordinates from all States and Union Territories of India.
The aim and object of NATP are to put the clear and unambiguous ground-level picture before Government to enable it to understand the ground level taxpayer and make necessary changes in law and procedures for compliances. At the same time, it is our aim and objects to support Government to fulfil its promise of providing ease of doing business to businesses and industries in the Country and help and support the taxpayers for smooth, correct and effective compliances under the direct and indirect tax laws.
We herewith congratulating your good selves and entire team CBDT for introducing the faceless assessment and appeal. A new era of “Honoring the Honest” and reducing the corruption which will reduce to nil effectively. We also congratulate that the Exchequer has appreciated your tenure as a Chairman, CBDT, and in consideration, the taxpayer will have the benefit of your services to the nation.
Sir, We as one of the stakeholders and being the bridge between honest taxpayers and the government like to brief our concerns that we all are passing through the notorious virus COVID19 and it is a matter of appreciation that the CBDT has granted refunds at a jet speed and also given concession in TDS rate and also extended the deadline.
Sir, we appreciate the efforts put in but at the same time we would like to draw your kind attention to the chart given herein below:
|Sr. No.||ITR No.||Date of release of Utility of ITR||Extended due Date of return of income||Original due date of return of income|
|6||ITR-6||Yet to be notified||30.11.2020||30.09.2020|
You will appreciate from the above chart that the due date of filing the return of income compared to the date of the extended due date of filing the return compared to the date of the utility available on the website of the Income-tax Department, don’t you think that the taxpayers are given less time to prepare the tax affairs? We are sure that your office will also be because we all are traversing with notorious virus COVID 19.
All our working with the fear of getting infected and everywhere the working is at reduced strength. So, looking to the chart you will appreciate that the time taken by the Department to announce the date of the returns for filing the return on the website with utility, same time is not given to the taxpayer to comply with his tax obligations.
Presently the spread of Virus COVID 19 is mounting but the economy is coming up with safety and, therefore, it is the need of an hour that the relief promptly and in advance, the date of compliance of filing the return as well as filing the tax audit and return may please be extended well within the time to avoid the Pandemic situation and to avoid the mental trauma with the taxpayer and the consultants involved in the process.
We hope, you will accede to our request and announce the extended deadline very soon.
For, National Association of Tax Professionals
