Tax Audit and Income Tax Due Date Extended:-

The deadline for Income Tax Return (ITR) has been extended again due to glitches on the portal during filing.

The due dates for the ITR e-filing and Tax Audit Report submit under Income Tax Act, 1961 have been extended to provide relief to the taxpayers because of glitches. However, many of the taxpayers have issues regarding the extended due dates.
