Here are the benefits of filing tax returns on time:

Easy approval of loan: Since banks require a copy of the ITR statement to verify income of loan seekers, having a record of submitting timely returns makes approval of loan simpler. On the other hand, those who do not close their returns on time, may find it difficult to get their loan approved.
