Notice Of ITR Deadline Extension To 30 Sept Is Fake, CBDT Clarifies

The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) on Friday clarified that the order about another extension to the Income Tax Return (ITR) filing circulating on social media is fake and taxpayers should complete their filing for FY19 by 31 August 2019.


"It has come to the notice of CBDT that an order is being circulated on social media pertaining to extension of due date for filing of income tax returns. It is categorically stated that the said order is not genuine. Taxpayers are advised to file their returns by 31.8.2019," CBDT said on Twitter.

The misleading order has been fast circulating over social media and is believed to be true considering the recent changes in ITR filing introduced by the department.
