The Income Tax department on Saturday extended the last date for filing tax returns (ITR) for the financial year 2019-20 till November 30, 2020.

 
"Understanding & keeping in mind the times that we are in, we have further extended deadlines. Now, filing of ITR for FY 2019-20 is extended to 30th Nov, 2020. We do hope this helps you plan things better," the department said in a tweet.

Providing relief to small and middle-class taxpayers, the date for payment of self-assessment tax with tax liability up to Rs 1 lakh has also been extended to November 30.

In cases with self-assessment tax liability over Rs 1 lakh, no extension has been granted and interest will be levied in case of delayed payments.
