Odisha waives fine on delayed filing of GST returns

Bhubaneswar: The State Government on Wednesday waived penalty on delayed filing of Goods and Services Tax (GST) returns for the months of August and September.

As per the GST law a State can fine a nominal fee of Rs 100 per day in case of late filing of returns and payment of taxes.

The move came after the Centre’s decision to waive the penalty on delayed filing of GST. “To facilitate taxpayers, late fee on filing of GSTR-3B for August and September has been waived,” tweeted Finance minister Arun Jaitley on Tuesday.

The late fee which has been already charged to businesses will be credited back to taxpayers’ accounts.
