ITR Filing Last Date: The Income Tax Department said on Wednesday that more than 4.86 crore income tax returns have been filed till December 28, out of which more than 18.89 lakh returns were filed on December 28 alone. The last date for filing income tax returns for the financial year 2020-21 for individual taxpayers is 31 March 2021.

The Income Tax Department tweeted that on December 28 alone, over 18.89 lakh ITRs were filed. With this, a total of 4.86 crore returns have been filed so far. This includes more than 2.57 crore ITR-1 and over 1.23 crore ITR-4. ITR-1 (Sahaj) and ITR-4 (Sugam) are simpler forms of return forms used by a large number of small and medium taxpayers.

Very few ITRs filed as compared to last year
If compared to last year, very few people have filed income tax returns this year. According to a tweet of the Income Tax Department dated 11 January 2021, a total of 5.95 crore ITRs were filed for the financial year 2019-20. Last year, the last date for filing ITR was January 10. If we talk about this year, till December 28, 2021, only 4.86 crore ITRs have been filed. That is, about 1.09 crore ITR files are yet to be filed. In such a situation, consider the extension of the last date to file ITR fixed, because it is not possible to file so many ITRs in just 3 days.
