It’s the end of the year 2021 and the last date to file an income tax return is approaching.

Due to the technical malfunctioning, glitches, and server down events problems are the same and only the developers or technical experts can handle this situation. According to the data and reports of the TAX Department, these situations have reduced the count of taxpayers and more than 1crore IT’s documents report has not been submitted to the portal.
