Centre firm on not extending deadline for ITR, netizens trend ‘extend due dates’

More than 4 crore returns have been filed till July 28, the IT department said on Friday. July 31 is the deadline to submit ITRs for FY 2021-2022 and AY 2022-23.

With the deadline to submit income tax returns (ITRs) for financial year 2021-22 and assessment year 2022-23, i.e. July 31, approaching, netizens, who are yet to close their returns due to various issues, including with the e-filing portal itself, have taken to Twitter demanding that the due date be immediately extended.

That the Union government is unlikely to extend the deadline this year has only added to the taxpayers’ headache.

Taking to Twitter, users have pointed to issues such as tedious process of filing the returns, glitches in the IT department’s portal, difficulty in downloading forms etc. as the reason why the due date for submitting returns should be extended.

Hashtags such as ‘Extend Due Dates’, ‘Extend Due Date Immediately’, among others, are trending widely on the social networking site.

In 2020 and 2021, the deadline was extended due to the raging Covid-19 pandemic.
