"More than 60 million ITRs filed for the 2022-23 fiscal year to date. What to do if you miss the deadline?

With only one day left before the deadline to file Income Tax Returns (ITR), the department announced that over 6 crore tax returns have been filed for the money earned during the 2022-23 fiscal year until Sunday evening. The income tax department has received a total of 27 lakh ITRs, which is more than the number filed at the same time last year on July 31.

The last date to submit your tax returns for the previous year, if you are a salaried individual or someone who doesn’t need their accounts checked by auditors, is July 31. This date was set by the income tax department, and they have decided not to give any more time beyond this deadline. So, make sure to file your taxes before July 31 to avoid any delays or penalties.

“Over 60 million Income Tax Returns (ITRs) have been submitted till now (as of 30th July). And today, until 6:30 pm, approximately 2.7 lahks more ITRs were filed!” This message was tweeted by the Income Tax Department.

The government department shared data that showed over 13 million successful logins on the online filing website until 6:30 pm on Sunday.

Income Tax department on issues being faced while filing ITR

The income tax department recently shared the total number of income tax returns (ITRs) filed up to Sunday. They also mentioned that they have a helpline that’s open all day, every day, to help taxpayers with filing their ITRs, making tax payments, and offering other related services. You can reach out to them through phone calls, live chats, WebEx sessions, or even on social media. So, if you need any assistance with your taxes, don’t hesitate to contact them through any of these channels. They are here to help!

Many people on Twitter complained about the income tax department’s tweet. They were upset because the website was either very slow or not working when they tried to file their ITRs. In reply, the income tax department gave some advice. They told the users to “clear browser cache” first. If the problem still didn’t go away, they asked the users to send an email to [email protected]. In this email, they should provide their details like PAN number and mobile number. The income tax team promised to get in touch with them to solve the issue.

On July 16, the government official in charge of revenue, Sanjay Malhotra, asked all taxpayers to submit their returns before July 31. He said the government wouldn’t be extending the deadline, so it’s essential to act on time. He also thanked those who already filed their income tax returns, noting that this year, people filed them more quickly than before. He advised everyone not to procrastinate and rely on any possible deadline extensions. So, make sure to file your returns promptly!

What if you missed the deadline?

In case you miss the deadline, you can still submit a ‘belated return,’ but there will be an additional fine for doing so.

If you submit your tax returns after the deadline but before December 31, you will be charged a fine of ₹5,000. However, if you file them after December 31, the fine goes up to ₹10,000.

What to do after filing ITR?

Once you’ve filed your income tax returns, the next important thing to do is e-verify the return within 30 days of filing. When you finish this step, your return will be considered e-verified. You’ll get a success message and a transaction ID on your mobile phone, and a confirmation email will be sent to the email address you provided during registration.
