Due Date for Filing of Tax Audit Report Delinked from Due Date for Filing of Return of Income from Assessment Year 2021-22
To enable pre-filing of returns on basis of audit reports, various sections of the Income-tax Act are proposed to be amended to provide that the tax audit report shall be furnished by the assessees at least one month prior to the due date of filing of return of income.
The due date for filing of return of income in case of tax audit is also proposed to be increased from September 30 to October 31 of the Assessment Year.
