Income Tax Return Deadline 2022: The last date for filing Income Tax Return is 31 July 2022. This means that we have only two days to file ITR. However, some taxpayers are anticipating that the Income Tax Department may extend the date of ITR filing.
For such taxpayers, tax and investment experts are advised to take a look at the latest tweet from the Income Tax Department. In which appeals are being made to the taxpayers to file their ITR by the due date to avoid late fees. This means that there is very little chance of an extension of the last date to file ITR.
Tax and investment experts say that the latest release issued by the Income Tax Department states that as on July 28, 2022, 4.09 crore ITRs have been filed. The total number of audited ITRs filed in the assessment year 2021-22 was around 5.7 crore.
In such a situation, there is not much reduction in the number of ITR filings in this current year as compared to last year. Keeping this in mind, it would be better to file ITR within the given due date i.e. by 31st July and not get confused about the extension of ITR filing date.
According to the latest message of the Income Tax Department, till July 28, 2022, 4.09 crore ITRs have been filed. More than 36 lakh ITRs have been filed only on 28 July 2022.
Over 4.09 crore ITRs filed till 28th July, 2022 & more than 36 lakh ITRs filed on 28th July, 2022 itself.
The due date to file ITR for AY 2022-23 is 31st July, 2022.
Please file your ITR now, if not filed as yet. Avoid late fee.
