“We urge all those who haven't filed ITR for assessment year (AY) 2023-24, to file their ITR at the earliest to avoid last minute rush,” the income tax department said in a tweet. The last date for filing ITRs by salaried employees and those who do not have to get their accounts audited for AY 2023-24 is July 31.
