Taxpayers are getting excited as the deadline for filing Income Tax Return (ITR) is approaching 31st December 2021. Over the past few days, people have taken to microblogging site Twitter to report glitches on the new income tax website that was launched earlier this year. Hashtags like #Extend_Due_Date_ immediately started trending on the microblogging site.
Taxpayers complain that they are unable to file returns as the website shows many technical glitches and crashes frequently. The last date to file ITR for AY21-22 is December 31, which was extended from July 31. Due to technical glitches in the website, taxpayers are demanding extension of ITR filing deadline.
Meanwhile, Income Tax India reminds users of the deadline and urges them to file their returns by December 31, 2021. “Dear Taxpayers! Remember to file your Income Tax Return for AY 2021-22 within the extended due date of 31st December 2021. Don’t wait, file now! Please visit: http://incometax.gov.in #FileNow #ITR,” the post read.
Let us know what are the problems taxpayers are facing.
There is a technical glitch in Form 10-ID. The data is not being captured from the database. They have no option to edit. So we are not able to fill the form. The ITR of the company is also not filed due to non-filing of Form 10-ID. No response to online complaint.
