CBDT extended due date for furnishing Tax Audit report u/s 44AB of the Income Tax Act, 1961 for AY 2014-15 from 30.09.2014 to 30.11.2014 in case of assessees who are not required to furnish report under section 92E of the Act. Mysteriously the order is silent about the extension of due date for filing returns. As we are all aware audit report needs to be furnished first before filing income tax returns for audit assesses. However the CBDT order remains unclear on this subject.
Schema will be available at the website of Income Tax Department within a couple of days with the facility to import already filled data in the previous utility.
