Bookmark

The finance ministry on Monday said the Central Board of Direct Taxes has extended the last date for filing advance income tax return by a fortnight to Dec. 31 for northeastern states, in view of the ongoing protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act.

Considering the large-scale disruption of internet services in the northeastern states -- Assam, Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur and Mizoram -- the CBDT has decided to extend the last date for filing advance tax payment, an official statement said.

The last date for filing third instalment of advance tax was Dec. 15.

The Central Board of Direct Taxes has decided to extend the last date for payment of December instalment of advance tax for 2019-20, from Dec. 15 to Dec. 31 in case of all the assessees, corporate and other than corporates of these states, it said.
