The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) announced on Tuesday evening that the deadline for filing GSTR-3B for the month of April has been extended to May 24. The CBIC further said that the taxpayers’ tax payment deadline, another form under the QRMP (Quarterly Return Filing and Monthly Payment) scheme, GST PMT-06, has also been extended till May 27.
This comes after the Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN) issued an advisory on May 15 regarding incomplete GSTR-2B.
Hours after CBIC’s announcement, Infosys reported an error in the April 2022 GSTR-2B and the automated population of GSTR-3B on the portal. It added that while taxpayers are facing problems, extending the deadline is under consideration.
“A technical error has been reported by Infosys between the GSTR-2B of April 2022 and the auto-population of GSTR-3B on the portal. The government has instructed Infosys for a preliminary solution. The technical team is working to provide GSTR-2B and will soon be working to automatically correct the crowded GSTR-3B, “the board said on Twitter.
It added, “Considering the difficulties that taxpayers have faced in filing their GSTR-3B for the month of April 2022, a proposal to extend the deadline for filing GSTR-3B for April 2022 is under active consideration.” Sorry for the inconvenience.
GSTR-3B is a self-declared short GST return that is filed every month (quarterly for QRMP scheme). Taxpayers are required to report brief sales figures, claim ITC and report net tax payable under GSTR-3B. Tax filing software ClearTax requires a separate GSTR-3B file for each GSTIN.
