We hereunder providing brief update on PTRC-Maharashtra. As you aware employers are liable to deduct and profession tax from the salaries of their employees and file PTRC returns either monthly or annually depending upon the periodicity.
These returns were not able to be filed/ uploaded due to technical glitches on Mahavat portal/ MahaGST portal and therefore it was clarified that those taxpayers who could not able to file their returns for the period April 2016 to November 2018 late filing fees will not be attracted (Trade Circular No.28T of 2018 dt.19-10-2018)
As this problem of technical glitches had not been solved, State of Maharashtra has further extended period for exemption of late filing fees from April 2016 to January 2019 subject to fulfillment of following conditions: (Trade Circular 6T of 2019 dt.14-01-2019)
- i) Tax amount payable as per return should be paid on or before due date; and
- ii) Such employers have to file their monthly or annual return for the period April 2016 to January 2019 on or before 28thFebruary 2019
If the taxpayer had already paid late fees, refund would not be granted. Request all of you kindly note the same.
