Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) decided to boost the deadline for e-filing of income tax returns for those taxpayers who file audit reports for Assessment Year (AY) 2017-18.
Taxpayers and professionals appealed to authorities through several modes to extend the last date for tax audit reports. Reason being, deficiency of clerical staff at chartered accountants’ offices due to the GST roll-out.
Earlier the deadline was extended from September 30, 2017 to October 31, 2017 and now there has been new extension for the same. The last date for Tax Audit reports is now extended for a week i.e. November 7, 2017.
