Bhubaneswar: The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) on Friday extended the due dates for depositing tax deducted at source (TDS) for the month of April 2019 from May 7 to May 20 for deductors in cyclone-hit Odisha.
In order to redress genuine hardship faced by the deductors due to the severe disruption of normal life caused by cyclone Fani hitting Odisha earlier this month, the relief in TDS compliance is being given to the deductors in the state, the CBDT said.
Besides, the due date of filing of quarterly statement of TDS for the last quarter of the financial year 2018-19 has been extended by a month to June 30 from May 31.
It also extended the due date for issue of TDS certificates in Form 16 and 16A to July 15 from June 15, 2019.
Notably, the severe Cyclone FANI had hit the state on May 3 causing severe destruction and breakdown of communication systems in the state.
