Last date for GST tax filing extended
The central government has extended the last date of filing returns and payment of taxes under GST for the month of July.
The deadline for the filing of GST tax returns is now 25 August instead of 20 August.
The last date had to be extended as the GSTN website was facing technical issues due to too much load.
The last date for filing returns for taxpayers who have to claim credit for previously paid taxes will be 28 August.
This will be the first tax return filed by the people under GST.
The tax will be filed using a simplified Form 3B for July and August months.
