CBDT Order dt. 20.08.2014 u/s 119 Extending Due Date For Filing TAR For AY 2014-15 (105.3 KiB, 3,954 hits)
Very true sir…let us see when good sense will prevail upon the babus..
As per notification only the date for obtaining and furnishing the audit report is extended and not the due date of income tax return.
It is strange to note that u/s 44AB reference is made to the due date of return as per section 139(1).
By notification they extended the due date of obtaining and furnishing of the audit report with specific reference to date whereas no specific due date was referred in the section 44AB. In such circumstances what is means by extension of due date of obtaining and furnishing of tax audit report.
It is just a joke with the professionals by the tax administrators.
get his accounts of such previous year audited by an accountant before the specified date and furnish by that date the report of such audit in the prescribed form duly signed and verified by such accountant and setting forth such particulars as may be prescribed
Explanation.—For the purposes of this section,—
(ii) “specified date”, in relation to the accounts of the assessee of the previous year relevant to an assessment year, means the due date for furnishing the return of income under sub-section (1) of section 139.
