With reference to above it is respectfully submitted on behalf of tax payers of the country that due to Covid-19 pandemic outbreak taxpayers are having huge loss of health, revenue and other resources. Almost all the States are having lockdown still up to around 10th of June, curfew and allowing very few amenities and services to run in the Country. States are taking precaution, managing health sectors to reduce it and stopping it from spreading in remote area of the states.
In this situation it’s fully difficult to comply regular tax and for various due dates falling in April and May month. In this regards, we requesting you to consider the following suggestions, and give relief to taxpayers.
- To Extend the date of TCS return of Q4 (Jan. to March 21 ) falling in this month of May 21 up to 31st July 2021.
- To Extend the date of Filling ITRs, Audit and Revise returns for F.Y. 19-20, it was earlier extended to 31st may 21, on after one month passing from the last date (31st March 2021) and everywhere the situation was worse, still the situation is same almost everywhere hence give a chance again to get it filled up to 31st July 2021.
- To abolish or defer the Sec. 194Q of I.T. Act 1961, which is proposed to be implemented w. e. f. 01st July 2021.
