Late on 09 September, the CBDT extended the deadline for filing of income-tax returns from 30-Sep to 31-Dec. This 3 month extension puts this year also on par with last year when the tax filing date was set at 31-Dec and eventually extended till 10-Jan. for FY 2020-21 to December 31, 2021. Earlier, the filing dates had been extended from the regular 31-July till 30-September. Clearly, COVID and launch of new portal were key reasons.

Similarly, the last date for filing of audited results has also been extended to end January. The new portal launched by Infosys saw a lot of teething problems and that has been a key reasons for postponing the filing date.
