What if you missed filing your ITR?
If the initial due date for submitting an income tax return is missed, a belated return can be filed later beyond the due date. The income tax department also sets the date by which the late return must be filed. This deadline has been pushed back three months to December 31st of the assessment year (unless extended by the government).
However, if the return is not filed on time, a penalty of Rs 5,000 would be imposed. Moreover, if the person’s total income is less than Rs 5 lakh, the cost is only Rs 1,000.
