The Minister extended the date in view of Eid-ul-Adha holidays falling in the month of September, 2016 and the fact that a number of taxpayers and their consultants were in Saudi Arabia for performance of Hajj. The taxpayers accordingly could not find ample time for filing their tax returns.
Therefore, in the spirit of taxpayers' facilitation, the due date of filing of tax returns/statements has been extended till 31st October, 2016.
