For Assessment Year 2015-2016, vide even number order dated 10th June, 2015, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (‘CBOT) had extended the ‘due-date’ for filing Income-tax returns till 31st August, 2015 in cases of those taxpayers who were required to file their tax-return by 31st July, 2015. This date was further extended till 7th September, 2015 in case of taxpayers of Gujarat in view of dislocation of general life in that State in last week of August.
