Taxpayers can file their income tax returns for FY21 by mid-March.

The deadline has also been extended due to problems being faced while e-filing of various audit reports under the provisions of the Income-tax Act, 1961.

The Income Tax Department had earlier stated that it has issued refunds of more than Rs 1.50 lakh crore so far this fiscal year.

This includes 1.1 crore refunds of Assessment Year 2021-22 amounting to Rs 21,323.55 crore.

"CBDT issues refunds of over ₹1,50,407 crore to more than 1.48 crore taxpayers from 1st Apr,2021 to 3rd January,2022," the IT department tweeted.
