In view of the continuous problems being faced by the taxpayers due to the covid epidemic, the Income Tax Department has once again extended the last date for linking PAN-Aadhaar.
Here is the new date for linking PAN-Aadhaar
The Income Tax Department has informed about extending the last date for linking PAN Card and Aadhaar on Twitter. Now its last date is 31 March 2022 instead of 30 September 2021. That is, taxpayers have got another 6 months for this.
Not only this, the Income Tax Department has also extended the last date for completing the penalty procedures under the Income Tax Act from 30 September to 31 March 2022.
This decision came regarding benami property
Apart from this, the last date for issuing notices and passing orders by the concerned authority under the Prevention of Benami Property Transactions Act, 1988 has also been extended to 31 March 2022.
The Income Tax Department had launched its new website on June 7 this year. Since its launch, taxpayers are facing many difficulties in filing Income Tax Return. In such a situation, this is also likely to be one of the reasons for extending the last date for linking Aadhaar and PAN.
