    Hi,

    I am looking for filing tax for AY 2012-13 but the Income Tax Online system does not allow me to file. I understood from one of the threads in this website that, we can file belated tax within 1 year from the due date.

    What are the other options to file tax for AY 2012-13? It is a zero tax that we need to file as we were out of country during that Financial Year.

    Thanks,
    Meenakshi

    Dear @Meenakshi

    Belated Return of Income Tax can be filed within 1 year from the end of the Assessment Year.

    So the last date for filing Belated Return for AY 2012-13 was 31st Mar 2014

    The last date has passed and that is the reason you are not able to file Return for AY 2012-13.

    PS: The example given in the thread you are referring to talks about FY 12-13 i.e. AY 13-14 and for that the last date is 31st Mar 2015

    Hi Karan,

    thank you for your reply. So does that mean we can never file tax for that year? Can we just leave it without filing as there was no income in India?

    Thanks,
    Meenakshi

    If you are not liable to tax, it is not mandatory for you to file income tax return.
