Extension of the due date of payment of tax deducted at source under 194M

Considering the fact that the utility for payment of tax deducted at source under section 194M of the Income-tax Act, 196I(the Act) was deployed on 17.12.2019, the Central Board of Direct Taxes, in exercise of the powers conferred under 119 of the Act, hereby extends the due date for payment of tax deducted at source under section 194M during the month of September, 2019 and October, 2019 and the due date for furnishing the challan-cum-statement in Form 26QD for the same, from 31.10.2019 and 30.11.2019 respectively to 31.12.2019. Consequently, the due date of furnishing of the certificate of deduction of tax in Form 16D has also been extended for the tax deducted during the month of September, 2019 and October, 2019 to 15.01.2020.


Reference is invited to the Circulars issued from time to time by Central Board of Direct Taxes (the Board) under section 268A of the Income-tax Act,1961 (the Act), for laying down monetary limits and other conditions for filing of departmental appeals before Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT), High Courts and SLPs/appeals before Supreme Court.

Several references have been received by the Board that in large number of cases where organised tax-evasion scam is noticed through bogus Long-Term Capital Gain (LTCG)/Short Term Capital Loss (STCL) on penny stocks and department is unable to pursue the cases in higher judicial fora on account of enhanced monetary limits. It has been reported that in large number of cases, ITA Ts and High Court have recognized the unique modus operandi involved in such scam and have passed judgements in favour of the revenue. However, in cases where some appellate fora have not given due consideration to position of law or facts investigated by the department, there is no remedy available with the department for filing further appeal in view of the prescribed monetary limits.

In this context, Board has decided that notwithstanding anything contained in any circular issued U/S 268A specifying monetary limits for filing of departmental appeals before Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (IT AT), High Courts and SLPs/appeals before Supreme Court, appeals may be filed on merits as an exception to said circular, where Board, by way of special order direct filing of appeal on merit in cases involved in organised tax evasion activity.
