14 Compliance Dates Extended – What is not Extended?

 

As expected, the CBDT vide its Circular NO. 16/2021 has extended the compliance date for 14 compliance. The circular issued by the CBDT says that the dates are extended in view of the “Difficulties reported by the taxpayers and other stakeholder in electronic filing of certain forms…..”.
The correct preface would have been “In view of the problem created by Infosys….In view of the untimely launching of the new income tax portal… … In view of …..etc etc”.
Jokes apart, let us know what is done and what is not done by the above circular.
The dates of following 14 compliance has been extended by above circular:

MOST IMPORTANTLY – WHAT NEED TO BE EXTENDED:
The dates for implementation of the New Portal needs to be EXTENDED. The easiest way is to defer the implementation schedule of the new portal and keep the original dates of compliance intact. For the sake of ONE, everyone is getting penalized.
I humbly appeal that the well settled, tried & tested income tax portal be restored in the interest of our country. The old portal was one of the finest portals the country has witnessed. There is no parallel to the old portal which has evolved in a fabulous way over a period of time.
There is enough trial and error that has been done with the GST Portal, MCA portal, etc. Let us restore the old income tax portal back.

    Restoration of the old portal is need of today. New portal may be used for the trial purpose only and sufficient time may be given to tax Practicnor as well as tax payer to be accustomed with new portal.
