  1. Hounorable high court of some state ordered to extend the filling date upto 31.10.2016 but CBDT ignore it. this is like as contempt or Court.

  2. Due date extende by 17 days while nature attack is running in shape of after flood as life killing desease. This extention is not enough. Think about problems. Deshehra, muharram also between this. A satisfactory and jenuine step must taken by cdbt regarding extention of date furthur.

  3. It would be better complying with the provisions of the Act within the due date. I do not see any reason why date should be extended. This has more or less become a regular practice to seek extension of the due date on some pretext or the other. In all cases before different High Courts , you do not feel that the assessee is aggrieved. It is always that the tax professional has sought for extension . Assesses seldom have challenged this provision as they seem to be happy with the rules . It is only CAs who always want extension . Govt shoul rethink about not having audit by CAs but should frame agencies who will take up this Herculean task of Audit.

    The Chairperson,
    Central Board of Direct Taxes,
    North Block,
    New Delhi-110001.

    Hon’ble Madam,

    Sub: Humble Request for consideration of extension of date for filing of IT Returns from 30.9.2015 to 31.10.2015 – Regarding

    1. The due date for corporate, and tax audit Returns is 30th September, 2015 for Income Tax Returns for assessment year 2015-16. However due to delay in prescribing the ITRs, enormous difficulty in getting the tax audit completed in time and various other reasons taxpayers are finding it difficult to furnish the returns within the date prescribed. Tax professionals also could not cope up with the work of e-filing as more details are required to be filled up and more returns are required to be e-filed for assessment year 2015-16. However, we are glad that maximum taxpayers are filing their Returns electronically.

    2. The matter has also been going on in various High Courts.

    3. Considering the overall circumstances and the practical difficulty of taxpayers in furnishing the return within due date, as also the view of the order of Hon’ble Punjab and Haryana High Court dated 29th September, 2015 and direction of Hon’ble Karnataka High Court we humbly request the Central Board of Direct Taxes for consideration of the matter and for suitable extension of date in the interest of taxpayers at large.

    With Regards,

    Yours faithfully,
