Coming as a relief for taxpayers- the income tax department has extended the deadline to link PAN with Aadhaar till December 31. Earlier, the last date to link Aadhaar to PAN was August 31, 2017. 

The department had earlier said that tax returns filed without linking of Aadhaar and PAN would not be taken up for processing unless the two were linked by August 31, 2017.

"Aadhaar was to be linked with PAN by August 31, 2017. The date for linking Aadhaar with PAN has been extended till December 31, 2017," said an official statement.

"The ‘due-date' for filing Income Tax Returns and various reports of audit prescribed under the Income-tax Act, 1961, has been extended from 30th September, 2017, to 31st October, 2017, for all taxpayers who were liable to file their Income Tax Returns by 30th September, 2017," the statement added.

The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) had earlier extended the deadline to file ITR by 5 days to August 5.
