Deadline for filing returns extended twice
Actually, earlier the last date for filing income tax return was 31st July. But due to difficulties being faced by the new income tax return portal taxpayers in filing income tax returns, the government extended the date of filing income tax returns for the first two months till 30 September. But after this, after complaints about the portal, the government extended the date of filing income tax return to December 31, 2021.
