Chartered Accountant Naveen Wadhwa, DGM, Taxmann.com says:


“As due date for filing of Income-tax return by individual taxpayers is July 31, they are left with only 21 days to furnish their return of income. As employees would start filing the Income-tax return on or after July 10, 2019, there would be a surge in return filers in the last 3 weeks of July. We have seen that every year the return filing website goes down when there is a sudden increase in traffic. Considering the recent changes and to avoid the rush, the CBDT may consider the extension of  due date in furnishing of income-tax return.”
