The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) announced on July 20 that the date for submission of form 15CA, 15CB has been extended to August 15. Taxpayers can now submit their form 15CA, 15CB in manual format to authorised dealers till August 15.

As per the Income-Tax Act, 1961, there is a requirement to furnish Form 15CA/15CB electronically. At present, 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.

However, taxpayers were reportedly finding difficulty in filing the forms online on http://incometax.gov.in, so, the CBDT granted further relaxations in electronic filing of forms 15CA and 15CB.

A government release read: “In view of the difficulties reported by taxpayers in electronic filing of Income Tax Forms 15CA/15CB on the portal www.incometax.gov.in, it had earlier been decided by CBDT that taxpayers could submit forms 15CA/15CB in manual format to the authorized dealer till July 15, 2021. So, the date was extended to August 15, 2021.”

The Centre has advised authorised dealers to accept such forms till August 15, 2021, for the purpose of foreign remittances. A facility will be provided on the new e-filing portal to upload these forms at a later date for the purpose of generation of the Document Identification Number.
