Extension in e-filing Income Tax Return upto 05.08.2013

I had also tried to open income tax e-filing website on 30.07.2013 or on 31.07.2013 , there was problem. It may be due to heavy rush of Income Tax Filers or Due to new facility named "Quick e-file return " launched by Income Tax return. In Quick e-file return, user continuously use income tax e-filing website till the submission of his return. 

Since ICAI was reported of the difficulties being faced while uploading the income tax returns in the e-filing website, the matter was taken up with appropriate authorities. The authorities have shared a Trouble Shooting guide for problems in accessing the with us with a request to spread the message. Members interested may please click on the link below. 

Considering the difficulties being faced by assessees at large, ICAI had requested CBDT to extend the due date of e-filing return of income. Accordingly, the date has been extended to 05.08.2013.
