You are aware that 31 Jul 2016 (slightly extended to 5th Aug 2016) was the due date for filing ITR for the FY 2015-16 (AY 2016-17). Notwithstanding that, we would like to tell you that ITR for the FY 2015-16 (AY 2016-17) can still be filed till 31 Mar 2017. If you do not file the ITR by 31 July 2016 but any time between 01 Aug 2016 and 31 Mar 2017, it would have the following effects:-
- You would not be able to Revise your ITR once filed.
- If you have any capital gains or losses that need to be carried forward, you would not be able to do that.
- There would be an interest levied on your tax that is still due.
Other than these two issues, there is no problem if you file your ITR any time between 01 Aug 2016 and 31 Mar 2017 for the subject period. In fact, you can file the ITRs for FY 2014-15 (AY 2015-16) also till 31 March 2017, though Income Tax Dept may levy a small penalty on you if you have any tax due as on date.
You must have received your Form 16 from your employers / PCDA (O) which will give you the details of your income and taxes paid from your employer. Income Tax return cannot be filed without your Form 16 if you are salaried.

The Income Tax Return (ITR) is being filed by us on your behalf solely on the basis of the data supplied by you. It will be assumed by us that you have the supporting documents in original or as required by the Income Tax authorities for all the data (income, investments, savings, tax payments etc) that you send to us for filing your IT Return. Its correctness also remains your sole responsibility. In case of any enquiry from Income Tax Dept, you would be required to produce such proofs as no attachments are allowed with IT Returns filed online.
We are fully responsible for correct filing of your ITR on the basis of your given data and our role is limited to that function. We have no role or influence in getting your refunds timely, early or at any stage since the ITRs are being filed online. In fact, the timeliness of refunds, if any, largely depends on your ITR Verification (ITR-V) reaching Central Processing Centre (CPC), Bangalore early after being signed by you.
IMPORTANT: Please not send us incomplete documents OR simply all the financial documents that you have. . It is very difficult for us to link up documents coming to us in bits and pieces. Please remember – if there is any tax due from you, there would be a penalty at the rate of 1% per month or part thereof if you file your IT Return after 31 Jul 2016. Also, late returns cannot be revised, once filed. Therefore, please try to send your documents to us at the earliest along with the payment so that returns can be filed by us in time.
