Form 16 due date extended for FY 2016-17
As per Rule 31 of the Income Tax Act, the due date for Form 16 (certificate for TDS deduction on salary) was 31st May 2017.
This year, the government has extended the TDS return (24Q) filing due date to 31st May 2017, thus making 31st the due date for TDS return filing as well as Form 16. To avoid any hardship and to enable hassle-free TDS return and Form 16 procedure, the government has extended the due date for FORM 16 issuance to 15th June 2017 (on 2nd June 2017 through gazette notification N0. G.S.R. 546(E)).
From FY 2016-17 onwards, the due date for issuing Form 16 would be 15th June.
