Reports: IRS to extend deadline for tax returns

Business
March 17 (UPI) -- The Internal Revenue Service plans to push back the date by which Americans must file their federal tax returns to give people more time to pay what they owe during the pandemic-related economic downturn, unnamed sources familiar with the matter said Wednesday. Sources confirmed the plans to Bloomberg, CNN and CNBC. Advertisement While the IRS hasn't solidified plans, the agency is expected to set May 15 or 17 as the new filing deadline, a month later than the traditional April 15 date.

NEW DELHI: With less than two weeks to go before the Vivaad Se Vishwas scheme ends, Income Tax officials across the country are reaching out to individuals as well as corporates — via phone calls, emails and letters — to persuade those taxpayers still in litigation with the department to avail of the direct tax dispute settlement scheme. Assessing officers have identified cases where the I-T department has filed appeals in courts for settlement and in cases where the interest component is high, in order to reach out to the assessees on time. “Reaching out to key litigants and our counterparts where we are in litigation is the key strategy for us, so that they can pay up 50% and withdraw,” said an official. This means cases where the department had challenged orders in the tax tribunal or H...
