A news report regarding ” extension of Tax Audit due date ”  – published in several local dailies have misguided tax professionals  & tax payers who are  related with Tax Audit  Business.

The news published in local dailies are saying that  on the basis of a writ petition filed by Tax Bar Association  Guwahati, the Hon’ble Gauhati  High court directed Central Board of Direct Taxes ( CBDT ) to extend due date for tax audit report under the Income Tax Act, 1961 upto 31st January’ 2018.

However , The Gauhati High court has not issued such a direction to CBDT to extend the due date. The Gauhati High Court only passed an order asking CBDT  to consider  and dispose off the representation filed by Tax Bar Association on or before 25.10.2018.”
