If you are running to file your Tax Return, Relax. The Income Tax Department has extended the date to file tax return. In view of the struggle faced by the tax payers, the last dates to file the Income Tax return has been extended to August 5th. The original deadline for filling was July 2017 for FY 2016-17 (AY 2017-18).
The extension was given because of the following probable reasons:
- Linking PAN Card with Aadhar Card
- Introduction of GST
- Income Tax website was not working properly
