1. What is the meaning of the due date as per income tax?

Some individuals are required to complete an ITR at the revenue department after the end of each financial year. To ensure timely submission of the refund the tax department has set a deadline for the person to lodge the refund without paying any late fees. This last day is called the ITR submission deadline. The deadline for submitting an ITR varies depending on the type of testers ie. Individual, HUF, Firm, LLP, Company, Trust and AOP / BOI and research use. In general, individuals and organizations, those who should be researched have a more recent deadline than those who complete the ITR without auditing.
