New Delhi sources stated that there is good news for taxpayers as the deadline to file income tax returns (ITR) has been extended by a month. Recently the finance ministry in a tweet announced the extension of ITR filling deadline by a month to August 31, 2018. Meanwhile the tweet says "Upon consideration of the matter, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) extends the ‘Due Date’ for filing of Income Tax Returns from 31st July, 2018 to 31st August, 2018 in respect of the said categories of taxpayers." 



Furthermore until last assessment year (AY) there was no penalty for filing belated income tax returns and however, this penalty is applicable from AY 2018-19. Further a new section 234F was inserted by the government in the Income Tax Act. Moreover as per this section, an individual would have to pay a fee of up to Rs 10,000 for filing income tax return after the due dates specified in section 139(1) of the Act.

The fee payable will increase to Rs 10,000, if the tax return is filed on or after January 1, 2019 and moreover if the total income of the taxpayer is less than Rs 5,00,000, the fee amount shall not exceed Rs 1,000.
