The Central Board of Direct Taxes has issued a letter under section 119 of the Income Tax Act, which states that, due to the disruption caused due to floods in Kerala the earlier order dated 26.7.2018 was being modified to extend the ITR filing deadline for Kerala assessees to 15.9.2018.

Filing Income Tax Return

Until the last Assessment Year there was no penalty for the late filing of the Income Tax Return, but from Financial Year 2017-18 that is same as Assessment Year 2018-19, there is a hefty penalty for the late filing of Income Tax Return, as per the new section 234F of the Income Tax Act. As per this section, a taxpayer will have to pay a penalty of Rs. 1000, Rs. 5000 and Rs. 10,000 depending on the amount of delay they have done while filing ITR.

Filing ITR is important and every individual who has income, must pay the Income Tax and file Income Tax Return within the stipulated time, well this may a major reason behind the extension of the due date.
