GST Filing Deadline Extended: The government of India on Tuesday extended the due date for filing Goods and Services Tax (GST) for the month of April. The new deadline is May 24, 2022. The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs also informed the taxpayers about the deadline through its official Twitter handle.
"The due date for filing FORM GSTR-3B for the month of April, 2022 has been extended till 24th May, 2022 (refer notification No. 05/2022-Central Tax dated 17.05.2022). (1/2)," CBIC tweeted.

The government took this step as taxpayers face technical glitches on the GST portal and directed Infosys for early resolution of the problem.
"Infosys has been directed by Govt for early resolution. Technical team is working to provide GSTR-2B & correct auto-populated GSTR-3B at the earliest," the CBIC tweeted.
GSTR-2B is an auto-drafted Input Tax Credit (ITC) statement that is available to every GST registered firm based on information provided by their suppliers in their respective GSTR-1 sales return forms.
Businesses often receive their GSTR-2B statement on the 12th day of the following month, allowing them to claim ITC while paying taxes and completing GSTR-3B.
For different types of taxpayers, GSTR-3B is filed in a staggered manner between the 20th, 22nd, and 24th of each month.
"Considering the difficulties faced by taxpayers in filing their GSTR-3B for the month of April 2022, a proposal to extend the due date of filing GSTR-3B for April 2022 is under active consideration," the CBIC tweeted.
