The income tax department has extended the last date for filing tax returns by one month.

The deadline for income tax return filing has been pushed to August 31, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) said on Thursday.

"Upon consideration of the matter, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) extends the 'Due Date' for the filing of Income Tax Returns from 31st July 2018 to 31st August 2018 in respect of the said categories of taxpayers," the Ministry of Finance tweeted.

Following the extension, Union Finance Minister Piyush Goyal urged citizens to avoid delaying tax payment and fulfil their duty as a law-abiding citizen.

"The last date for submission of income tax has been extended from 31st July to 31st August 2018, I request every taxpayer to submit their income tax by the due date, fulfil their duty as a law-abiding citizen and contribute in the nation building," he tweeted.

The initial deadline for filing tax returns was July 31. (ANI)
