E-filing of I-T returns crosses one crore till July 31

E-filing of income tax returns has crossed the one crore mark with the maximum of such filings done by the salaried class of taxpayers.

In a latest data released by the Central Processing Centre of the I-T department based in Bangalore, a total of 1,03,21,775 e-returns were filed by taxpayers till July 31, which is quite less than the over 2 crore e-filing numbers filed during the financial year 2012-13.

The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT), the administrative authority of the Income Tax department, has recently enhanced the last date for filing of I-T returns, both manual and e-filed, to August 5 for the 2013-14 fiscal. A total of 57,81,252 salaried class filed their e-returns till July 31 through the Internet which is also less than the over 64 lakh figure filed by salaried taxpayers during the same period last year.

"These figures are expected to rise drastically by August 5," a senior income tax officer said.
