The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has extended the deadline for filing Income Tax Return and various reports for the Assessment Year (AY) 2021-22. The due date for filing ITR for AY 2021-22 has been extended to March 15, 2022 for taxpayers.

The decision comes as various chartered accountant groups have called on the government to extend the deadline, citing the impact of Covid-19 and problems in the e-filing platform as causes for the delays in submissions. According to the official circular, it is mentioned that the deadline has been extended “on consideration of difficulties reported by taxpayers and stakeholders due to Covid and in electronic filing of various reports.”
