The Income Tax department on Tuesday extended, till September 15, the deadline for filing tax returns for taxpayers in Kerala, due to the devastating floods in the state.

"The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) extends the date for filing of Income Tax Returns for taxpayers in Kerala,” the department said in a tweet.

“Due to disruption caused by severe floods in Kerala, CBDT hereby further extends the due date for furnishing Income Tax Returns from 31st Aug, 2018 to 15th Sept, 2018 for all Income Tax assessees in the State of Kerala,who were liable to file their Income Tax Returns by 31.08.2018,” it said.

Kerala was battered by floods this month following more than a week long spell of heavy rainfall since August 8 that left over 300 people dead as well as causing heavy damage to the infrastructure and property.
