New Delhi: Although the last date (July 31) to file the income tax return (ITR) for the Financial Year 2022-2023 (Assessment Year 2023-24) was July 31, netizens have constantly been urging the Income Tax Department to extend the deadline.
The hashtag “Extend ITR Deadline” has been trending on Twitter since the last couple of days with numerous taxpayers facing difficulties with filing their ITR. Users are either encountering login issues or utility issues while attempting to file their returns on the income tax official portal.

Meanwhile there is no official word from the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) on the matter of extension of the ITR Deadline.
