Further Extension – Income Tax Return Filing Deadline for FY 2020-21 (AY 2021-22)

CBDT has further extended the due dates for filing the Income Tax Returns and various reports of audit for the Assessment Year 2021-22. This is primarily due to the challenges reported by taxpayers and other stakeholders. 

In May, the Finance Ministry had extended the compliance deadlines stating that the extension of time limits for certain tax compliances is being given to provide relief to taxpayers in view of the severe pandemic. Now, these deadlines have been extended further.

For individual tax payers (whose accounts are not to be audited), the due date has been extended to 31st Dec 2021.
