Along with extending other deadlines of linking of PAN with Aadhaar, tax saving investments for FY 2019-20, government has also mentioned Form 16. New extended date for companies for issuance of TDS certificates i.e Form 16, Form 16A etc to employees is August 15, 2020.

Government has finally decided to give more time for filing income tax returns as well as for other related activities. This is on account of the prolonged lockdown on account of COVID-19. The deadline for making eligible investments under Section 80C, Section 80D and other tax saving outlays has been extended by one more month from June 30 to July 31.

The last date for filing of returns with respect to FY2018-19 has been extended by one month till July end. One concern was the timeline for Aadhar-PAN linking. As a result the deadline for linking of Aadhar Card with Income Tax PAN has now been extended to March 2021. Tax returns for FY2019-20 can be filed by November 30, but that could change.
