Over 43% of these ITRs have been filed using the online ITR form on the portal and the balance have been uploaded using the ITR created from the offline ITR preparation software utilities, including Departmental software,” the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) had said in a statement dated 16th March 2022.
The Department is expecting that most of the returns for AY 2022-23 will be filed by the due date (July 31), and therefore the Government is not planning to extend the deadline.
Till 15th March, the Department had issued Income Tax refunds of Rs 1.83 crore till 15th March 2022. Meanwhile, a number of taxpayers and tax practitioners have been urging the Government to extend the due dates for AY 2022-23. As the Government is unlikely to extend the deadline this year, taxpayers should try to file their returns by the last date i.e. July 31, 2022. This date is applicable for only those taxpayers (individuals and HUFs) whose accounts don’t need to be audited.
How to check ITR status
If you have filed ITR, you can check the status of returns by logging into the new e-filing website. The tax department also sends an intimation notice after processing the verified ITR. The Income Tax Refund is issued after the ITR is verified and processed.
