New Delhi. It is mandatory for taxpayers to file income tax return. A deadline is issued by the government to fill it, within which taxpayers have to pay tax in any case. The Finance Ministry on Wednesday extended the deadline for filing income tax returns by companies for the assessment year 2022-23 to November 7. For companies that are required to get their accounts audited, the last date for filing ITR was earlier October 31.
The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) said in a notification that since the deadline for filing audit reports was extended last month, the deadline for filing ITR has also been extended.
