CBDT extends due date of 31st July 2019 for filing ITR to 31.08.2019. The due date of 31st July is primarily meant for salaried emplaoyee and non audit cases.

CBDT has finally extended the due date of 31.07.2019 for filing the income tax return (ITR) by salaried employees to 31.08.2019.

It was long anticipated that CBDT shall be passing an order u/s 119 for extension of the due dates.

The extension of the due date was inevitable in view of the recent extension made to the due dates for furnishing Form 16 to employees by the employers.

The order of extension is as under:
