Dear Professional Seniors & Friends,

Warm Greetings!

 

This post of MCQ is on the provisions relating to consequences in case of return filed after due date.

 

Answer to MCQ 15.1 : A)

Answer to MCQ 15.2 : C)

Answer to MCQ 15.3 : D)

Answer to MCQ 15.4 : D)

Answer to MCQ 15.5 : C)

 

 

Practical Analysis for MCQ 15.1

 

  • It has been held by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of CIT vs Prannoy Roy, 309 ITR 231 (2009) that the interest under section 234A of the Act on default in furnishing return of income shall be payable only on the amount of tax that has not been deposited before the due date of filing of the income-tax return.

 

  • CBDT also reviewed the same order of High court and it was confirmed vide Circular No. 02/2015 dated 10th Feb, 2015 that no interest under section 234A of the Act is chargeable on the amount of self-assessment tax paid by the assessee before the due date of filing of return of income.

 

  • Based on the above analysis, correct answer to MCQ 15.1 : A) Interest under Section 234B & C will be applicable as these are not based on return filing date but interest under Section 234A will not be applicable.

 

 

Practical Analysis for MCQ 15.2 to 15.4

 

  • Section 139(3) read with Section 80 provides that loss claimed in following sections shall not be carried forward and set off if Return of Income is filed after the due date i.e.
  • Section 72 – Losses of Business
  • Section 73 – Losses in Speculation Business
  • Section 73A – Losses of Specified Business
  • Section 74 – Losses of Capital Gains
  • Section 74A – Losses of Other Sources

 

  • Point here to note is that the section restrict to carry forward and set off of losses only and does not in any way restrict the unabsorbed depreciation. So unabsorbed depreciation can be carry forward and set off even if the return is filed after due date.

 

  • Also the section put restriction on carry forward and set off for all nature of losses except losses from house property.

 

  • Based on the above analysis, correct answer to MCQ 15.2 : C) Loss of Rs 50,000 can’t be carried forward and set off.

 

  • Correct answer to MCQ 15.3 : D) Depreciation of Rs 75,000 can be carried forward and set off.

 

  • Correct answer to MCQ 15.4 : D) House Property Loss of Rs 90,000 can be carried forward and set off.

 

Practical Analysis for MCQ 15.5

  • Now that from the above MCQ, we have understand that losses of business cannot be carry forward and set off if the return is filed after due date.
  • Let us look a section of Income Tax[119(2)(b)] which provides condonation of delay in filing refund claim and claim of carry forward losses.
  • The said section is well supported by department circular 9/2015 dated 9/6/15 which provides as follows –
  • Application for condonation of delay in filing return can be submiited to prinicipal officer within 6 years from the end of AY for which such application is made.
  • Application will be accepted if the loss declared is correct and genuine and also that the case is of genuine hardship on merits.
  • The applications/claims for amount exceeding Rs.50 lakhs shall not be considered by the proper officer but can be considered by the board.
  • Based on the above analysis, correct answer to MCQ 15.5 : (C) Claim in excess of Rs 50 lakhs shall not be entertained at any level.

(Disclaimer: The objective of the MCQ post is just to discuss the concept, it may happen, by change of facts, the answer may be different. Please do not treat this as professional opinion; you can definitely have your own opinion.)
