    Government of India / Ministry of Finance
    Department of Revenue
    Central Board of Direct Taxes

    New Delhi the 3rd June 2010
    The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) have directed the Income
    Tax Department (ITD) to make arrangements for receiving income tax
    returns on 31st July 2010, the due date for filing tax returns by most
    taxpayers, as that day happens to be a Saturday. ITD has also been asked to
    make special arrangements by setting up additional counters from 28th July
    to 31st July 2010, to facilitate taxpayers in filing their income tax returns.

    In Delhi, special counters will be set up in Pragati Maidan, as in
    earlier years, to receive about 5 lakh income tax returns that are filed in
    the last few days. The Chief Commissioner of Income Tax, Delhi, will later
    announce the details of the special arrangements made for the taxpayers of
    Delhi. Counters will be opened to give additional and value-added services
    such as free return forms, photocopy, PAN application and information, efiling,
    help desk, etc. Separate counters will also be opened for senior
    citizens and ladies, wherever required.

    Similarly, special arrangements will be made in other major taxcollecting
    centers of the ITD such as Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Chennai,
    Chandigarh, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, etc. The respective Chief
    Commissioners of Income Tax will announce details of arrangements made
    in these cities.
    Taxpayers are advised to file their income tax returns early to avoid
    the last minute rush. Taxpayers are also requested to use the e-filing facility
    of the Income Tax department to get faster and error-free services. It is easy,
    secure and can be availed of from anywhere anytime. E-filing service is
    available on the website https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/portal/index.jsp
    The Income Tax Rules have been recently amended to include Receipt
    Number on the TDS certificates as a mandatory field. It is clarified that
    Receipt Number will not be required for the income tax returns to be filed
    this year (assessment year 2010-11), but only from next year. Tax deductors
    are, however, requested to quote Receipt Number of the TDS return for all
    tax deducted from this financial year.
