The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has decided to extend the time Limit for filing ITR-V forms relating to income-tax returns for A.Y. 2009-10 filed electronically (without digital signature) on or after 1st April 2009. These ITR-V forms can now be filed up to 31st December 2010 or within a period of 120 days of uploading of the electronic return data, whichever is Later.
2. The relaxation has been made since there are still returns relating to A.Y. 2009-10 for which the ITR-V forms have not been received at the Centralised Processing Centre (CPC), Bengaluru or have been received after 31st March 2010 or have been filed with the Assessing Officers. These taxpayers are being given a final opportunity to send ITR-V forms to the CPC by the dates mentioned in para 1 above.
3. The ITR-V forms should be sent by ordinary post or speed post to Post Bag No.1, Electronic City Post Office, Bengaluru – 560100 (Karnataka).
