ITR Fill: Return filing time will end in a few hours, trend starts on Twitter

Income Tax Return File Last Date : Now only a few hours are left to file Income Tax Return. You would know that 31st July is the last date to file returns. You might be thinking that the government could have extended the last date for filing ITR by issuing a notification. But till now no such notification has been issued.

Demand to extend the date immediately
It is known that Friday has passed, and Saturday is passing and so far no announcement has been made to extend this date. In such a situation, people have raised their demand through social networking site Twitter. Today, while demanding this, people have trended Extend Due Date Immediately. This means that the last date should be extended immediately.

Taxpayers counted these 5 reasons
Taxpayers are complaining about the problem related to the portal and requesting the Income Tax Department to extend the time limit. On Twitter, a user named CA Nitin Nayak wrote – #Extend_Due_Date_Immediately. He also gave his reasoning behind the demand to increase it. He wrote-
1. 26AS and AIS are not matching.
2. The portal is not fully functional.
3. 26AS not updated as of June 15th.
4. Forms are not available for timely filing.
5. Dates for filing TDS and GST returns clash.

Late fee will not have to be paid
It is to be known that after the last date has passed, the taxpayers filing ITR will have to pay a late fee. Late filing of ITR will attract a penalty of Rs 1,000 for people earning less than Rs 5 lakh. If someone’s total income is more than Rs 5 lakh, then he will have to pay Rs 5,000 as fine.

41% Indians did not file returns
Meanwhile, according to data provided by community social media platform LocalCircles, 41 per cent of Indians who are eligible to file returns have not yet filed returns. Around 10 percent say they were facing technical glitches.
