New Delhi: You can now file your in­come tax re­turns till Sat­ur­day this week. The Cen­tral Board of Di­rect Taxes has ex­tended the dead­line for fil­ing re­turns till Au­gust 5.

“In or­der to fa­cil­i­tate the e-fil­ing of re­turns, it is also de­cided to give ex­ten­sion of five days… The re­turn can be filed up to Au­gust 5, 2017,” a CBDT state­ment said on Mon­day. The CBDT has said it would be suf­fi­cient, as of now, to quote Aad­haar or ac­knowl­edge­ment num­ber for hav­ing ap­plied for Aad­haar in efil­ing and the ac­tual link­ing of PAN with Aad­haar can be done sub­se­quently, but any time be­fore Au­gust 31.

How­ever, the re­turns will not be pro­cessed with­out the link­age of Aad­haar with PAN, it said. Tax­pay­ers had been com­plain­ing about the site not work­ing for the last two days. CBDT blamed it on the last minute rush. The de­ci­sion to ex­tend the dead­line was taken af­ter a meet­ing of the rev­enue depart­ment and the CBDT.
