Date extended till July 15
The Income Tax Department on Monday extended permission for submitting form 15CA/15CB manually with authorised dealer for the purpose of foreign remittance till July 15 against June 30, earlier. Form 15CA is a declaration by resident Indian for making payment to a non-resident after deducting the tax. Form 15CB refers to certificate issued by chartered accountant stating that taxation provision has been complied. “In view of the difficulties reported by taxpayers in electronic filing of the forms on http://www.incometax.gov.in, it had earlier been decided by CBDT that taxpayers could submit forms 15CA/15CB in manual format to the authorised dealer till June 30. It has now been decided to extend the date to July 15,” a statement by the CBDT said.
As per the Income-Tax Act, 1961, there is a requirement to furnish form 15CA/15CB electronically. Presently, taxpayers upload the Form 15CA, along with the chartered accountant certificate in form 15CB, wherever applicable, on the e-filing portal, before submitting the copy to the authorized dealer for any foreign remittance.
