Income Tax department News
Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday urged Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar to ensure that industrialists are “not disturbed by some agencies”. She made it obvious that her apparent dig was in response to recent income tax raids and ED actions against a number of firms. The Income Tax department had recently raided an auto major, a charter airline and realtor.
The department has already extended the deadline for individual taxpayers to file income tax returns. For the financial year 2019-20, 5.95 crore ITRs were filed till the extended deadline of January 10, 2021. Taxpayers can also send a physical copy of the ITR filed to the centralised processing centre (CPC) office in Bengaluru.
