In our earlier post, based on the press release by Ministry of Finance relating to Taxation and other Laws (Relaxation of Certain Provisions) Ordinance, 2020, we had mentioned in our post that due date for filing of TDS return has not been extended to 30.06.2020.
We had received many question based on the above post finance minister had mentioned the same in her speech that all due dates have been extended to 30.06.2020 then why the due date for TDS return have not been extended. However on the basis of ordinance available with us we had posted that no due date has been extended by Finance minister even though same was mentioned in her speech.
However, now with the help of one of our reader we came across an ordinance issued in e-gazette by Ministry of Law and Justice and not Ministry of Finance and both the ordinance are on the same topic i.e. extension of time limit due between 20.03.2020 to 29.06.2020 but there are few things different in both of them.
In the ordinance referred by us, didn’t talk about extension of time limit for filing of any appeal or filing of any return. However point no. 3 of this ordinance issued by Ministry of law and justice says:
“filing of any appeal, reply or application or furnishing of any report, document, return, statement or such other record, by whatever name called, under the provision of the specified Act: or…
stand extended to 30th day of June, 2020, or such other date after 30th day of June, 2020 as the Central government may, by notification, specify in this behalf”
Other than the above points rest all points are same as mentioned in the ordinance issued in Press release.
Since the above point has been mentioned in the Gazette it shall be considered over and above Press-release and hence the due date for filing TDS return or even due date for return u/s 148 which are due between 20.03.2020 to 29.06.2020 has been extended to 31.03.2020.
