Govt extends date for filing GST returns, tax payment by 5 days

20 Août 2017

In the evening, the GST Implementation Committee, consisting of state and Centre officers, chose to extend the last date for payment of the GST for July to August 25.

The government extended the deadline for payment of the goods and services tax GST and filing of GST return-3B for July by five days to August 25.

What needs to be noted here is, this extension of deadline to August 28, is only for those taxpayers who wants to use the opening balance of pre-GST in the current month. Sunday being a non-working day most taxpayers rushed to file returns on Saturday but the website broke down at around 11am.
