Government extends GST return filing date to August 25

1 Comment

NEW DELHI: The government on Saturday extended till August 25 the last date for filing returns and payment of taxes under the GST regime after the GSTN Portal faced technical Issues because of huge rush.

Earlier, the cut-off for filing maiden GST returns for July was scheduled to end on Sunday, August 20, which explained the heavy traffic at ‘www.gst.gov.in’.

But the portal suffered technical glitches as it was unable to take the load. The government has now extended the deadline by 5 days.

In a statement, the finance ministry said: “The GST Implementation Committee, consisting of state and central government officers, has taken a decision to extend the last date for payment of GST for July 2017 to August 25, 2017.”

It said certain flood-hit states as well as Jammu and Kashmir had sought an extension.

For taxpayers who have to claim credit for past taxes paid by filing form TRANS 1, the last date for returns will be August 28.

“In order not to face any last moment technological difficulty in submission of returns, all taxpayers are requested to kindly file their return well before 25th / 28th of August 2017 and not wait for the last date,” the ministry said.

Since today morning, traders across the country experienced difficulties in filing returns and uploading GSTR 3B on the GST Network portal — the company mandated to build the IT backbone for the new indirect tax regime.

GST Network took to twitter, saying, “The GST portal is experiencing some issues. Kindly try after some time.”
