“December 31, 2021, is the deadline to file an ITR(Income Tax Return) for the 2021-22 assessment year.”
To make the tax filing process hassle-free, the Indian Government has launched an e-filing portal in 2021. Now, filing an ITR is easier than ever before. It’s also announced that the deadline for filing income tax returns is December 31, 2021. So, the taxpayers seeking tax returns should file as soon as possible before December 31, 2021, using the e-filing portal. All you need to do is sign up at the portal and submit the tax returns providing the appropriate details.
Did you know the IT(Income Tax) department has introduced several automated and effective workflow systems such as automated annual info statements, tax return filing system, and a lot more to make the income tax return more feasible and accessible in shoer span? Since the deadline is December 31, 2021, make sure you file for an ITR for the 2021-22 assessment year within the deadline.
The It department advises each taxpayer to file for ITR before the given deadline to avoid complications. Earlier, the filing for an ITR was set for July 31, 2021, and then it was postponed to September 30 due to several technical interruptions and other glitches. Now, the Government has increased the deadline to file an ITR by December 31, 2021.
Surprisingly, the Ministry of Finance Statement recently revealed that the total ITR filed up to December 3, 2021, is a whopping amount of three crores. Also, the Income Tax department has suggested that taxpayers view their Form 26AS and Annual Income Statement using the e-filing portal. This helps the taxpayers to verify the TDS, Tax filings, pre-filing of ITRs, and other details.
The Ministry informed that it is essential to check the AIS(Annual Information Statement) using Bank Passbook, interest certificate, Form 16, and other required attachment documents for smooth financial health.
