New Delhi, July 30: The last date to file income tax return (ITR) for the financial year 2021-22 is tomorrow, July 31 2022. It is a good idea to file it before the last date. However if you miss filing it, then what happens.
If you miss the deadline of July 31, then you can still file it by December 31 2022. However you will have to pay a late fee and it could have some financial consequences.
The late fee for those whose annual income is up to Rs 5 lakh is Rs 1,000. If you annual income is above Rs 5,000 then the late fee is Rs 5,000.
The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) on Tuesday extended the due dates for Income Tax Return (ITR) filing for certain category of taxpayers for the financial year 2020-21 "on consideration of difficulties reported by taxpayers and stakeholders due to Covid and in electronic filing of various reports", said the Ministry of Finance in a statement.

ISIP™ practicing meets Tier 2 ESSA evidence standards
DALLAS, Aug. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Recently, Evidence for ESSA validated Istation's practicing assessment meeting Tier 2 ESSA evidence standards (www.evidenceforessa.org). This designation supports a wide range of independent research studies that show Istation as a proven-to-work tool to Strengthen learning outcomes.
Evidence for ESSA provides easy access to information on programs that meet the evidence requirements defined in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Aligned with What Works Clearinghouse standards, Tier 2 ESSA standards indicate that Istation's practicing assessment shows moderate evidence of being an effective digital learning tool that helps students close significant practicing achievement gaps.
Istation's program efficacy was evaluated in a two-year quasi-experimental (matched) study involving 1,234 students in grades 2 through 4. The 617 students who used Istation came from six schools located in a district in the southeast United States. Istation users scored nearly a full point higher on the MAP® Reading™ assessment in comparison with demographically and academically similar students in a virtual control group who did not use Istation. These results show that Istation use was significantly associated with larger practicing achievement gains.
"Gaining Tier 2 ESSA evidence is a great milestone as we further build the efficacy of our practicing assessments," said Istation Vice President of Research and Assessment Dr. Victoria Locke. "Supporting educators with effective, research-backed digital tools is critical in empowering classrooms everywhere."
Powered by the science of reading, Istation's engaging assessments and instruction cover the National practicing Panel's "Big Five" foundational essentials. Istation's ISIP practicing assessment is a computer-adaptive testing system that provides actionable and insightful data that measures phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary, as well as many other skills.
Founded in 1998 and based in Dallas, Texas, Istation (Imagination Station) has become one of the nation's leading providers of richly animated, game-like educational technology. Winner of several national educational technology awards, the Istation program puts more instructional time in the classroom through small-group and collaborative instruction.

Friday, July 22, 2022
At the conclusion of this year’s legislative session, the South Carolina General Assembly passed The Comprehensive Tax Cut Act of 2022 (the “Act”). Among a number of other significant tax changes, the Act effectively increases the property tax exemption amount from 14.2857% to 42.8571% for manufacturing property. This change indirectly lowers the property tax assessment ratio for manufacturers from 10.5% to 6%. This marks a significant departure from the decades-long practice of assessing manufacturing property at 10.5%
This change is tremendous news to manufacturers with real property assets which predate fee in lieu of tax agreements (“FILOTs”); manufacturers who acquired assets after their FILOT investment period had run; manufacturers whose FILOT is expiring; and small and medium-size manufacturers who never received a FILOT in the first place.
Pursuant to the Act, South Carolina counties will now be reimbursed (up to a statewide cap of $170 million) for the tax revenue losses resulting from the property tax assessment ratio reduction. If local governments hit the reimbursement cap, the Act provides that the property tax assessment ratio reduction will be proportionally reduced so as not to exceed the cap. The Act provides that the reduced assessment ratio goes into effect for “property tax years after 2021.” Given that we are currently in property tax year 2023, the reduction goes into effect this year.
Now that property tax assessment ratios for manufacturing companies are set at 6% without the need to obtain a FILOT, when should companies still consider seeking a FILOT?
FILOTs typically lock in the assessment ratio and the millage rate that will apply to covered property for 30–40 years. Just as the General Assembly acted to reduce the assessment ratio this year, it could also repeal or amend the assessment ratio again in future years. As a result, it can be beneficial to have the contractual agreement in the FILOT to certain the assessment and millage rates for the duration of the project. While some counties lock in a millage rate for the entire duration of the Fee Agreement and others are subject to adjustments every five years, there remain savings for companies as millage rates tend to increase over time. Given current inflation, population growth, and the possibility of reduced income due to the assessment ratio reduction, South Carolina counties may more aggressively seek to increase their millage rates. FILOTs also lock in real estate values for the duration of the FILOT. Locking in the real estate value can save projects a considerable amount of money over the term of the FILOT.
Additionally, counties often offer Special Source Revenue Credits (SSRCs) along with FILOTs. SSRCs are separate credits that can be applied to reduce companies’ annual FILOT payments. While it is possible for SSRCs to be offered through standalone SSRC Agreements, they are more commonly offered alongside FILOT Agreements. The process for obtaining approval of a standalone SSRC Agreement is the same as that for obtaining approval of a FILOT, so given the benefits of a FILOT as outlined above, projects that are eligible for SSRCs will likely want to continue to pair those SSRCs with a FILOT as well.
Larger manufacturing projects will still want to utilize a FILOT, particularly if they qualify for a Super FILOT. In order to qualify for a Super FILOT, a company must be planning on an enhanced investment in the State through either a $400 million capital investment or a $125 million capital investment with a commitment to create 125 new full-time jobs. Super FILOT Agreements further reduce the assessment ratio to 4%, which allows for the company to achieve greater savings during the term of the Super FILOT.
Additionally, for larger sites, it is also particularly beneficial to have a FILOT Agreement to remain exempt from rollback taxes. Rollback taxes occur when a property changes from agricultural use to commercial or residential use. Fee Agreements can operate to eliminate rollback taxes which can result in significant savings for companies that are changing the use of the property from agricultural to commercial.
Ultimately, while the Act provided many benefits for companies outside FILOT Agreements, there can be additional benefits from entering into a FILOT Agreement.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - If an Alabama law were fully implemented, 12,000 students across the state wouldn’t be moving on to the next grade. They’d be held back.
Last year, a portion of The Alabama Literacy Act went into effect it was created to help Strengthen practicing in Alabama public schools. It was also created to ensure students are practicing on grade level by the end of the 3rd grade.
After one year, there has been only a small improvement in test scores. There is still a long way to go.
“Without that skill at the end of the third grade, they are four times more likely not to complete high school,” said Senior Research Associate for Public Affairs Research Council of Alabama Thomas Spencer.
Spencer says the 2022 Alabama Comprehensive Assessment Program test scores show that 22 percent of third graders are not practicing at a proficient level.
During the 2021 school year, Alabama implemented the Literacy Act curriculum to sharpen the focus on early grades reading.
“Particularly, students with learning disabilities and also students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds end to not come into school with quite the level of preparation and exposure to literature and practicing that other kids get,” Spencer said.
According to the test scores, Wilcox County had the lowest test scores, with 58% of third graders falling behind, and the highest test scores were from Mountain Brook City, with just three percent.
“Parents, teachers, and communities need to work together and identify those students who are struggling in practicing and wrap the services around them as early as kindergarten,” Spencer said.
Originally, part of the act was to hold back any 3rd-grade student, not at a proficient practicing level, but that portion of the act has been delayed until the 2023-24 school year.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Alliance for Aging Research's (Alliance) President and CEO Susan Peschin, MHS, released the following statement on the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022:
The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 has several provisions that the Alliance for Aging Research has long supported and should become law—expansion of the low-income subsidy program; reducing beneficiary costs for vaccination; an inflationary cap; and most notably, the Medicare Part D provisions restructuring the benefit and adding a much-needed annual cap on out-of-pocket costs. For that reason, it is profoundly disappointing that we must oppose the current version of the bill, because it allows for an across-the-board, discriminatory government price-setting structure under the guise of direct negotiation. As currently drafted, this legislation permits use of methodologies that discriminate against older adults and people with disabilities that could severely limit patient access to current and future breakthrough treatments. Since 2019, the Alliance has consistently urged federal policymakers to reject any prescription drug price-setting proposal—including international reference pricing, Most Favored Nation, and direct negotiation—that would authorize Medicare program use of discriminatory cost-effectiveness standards to ration care.
The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 fails to incorporate the repeated recommendations of the National Council on Disability (NCD), an independent federal agency. Since 2019, the NCD has cautioned against permitting use of discriminatory price-setting methodologies, such as the quality-adjusted life year (QALY) because it would undermine the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and major U.S. disability and civil rights laws. In February of this year, the NCD's 2022 Health Equity Framework for People with Disabilities specifically proposed a "blanket [legislative] prohibition" on the use of QALYs by "any federal agency" and last November recommended language to unambiguously bar QALYs in the reconciliation bill. Also last fall, more than 130 organizations called on Congress to reject drug proposals that use the QALY methodology or similar value assessment frameworks, stating, "As Medicare is the primary source of health insurance for older adults and people with disabilities, utilizing QALYs or similar metrics in pricing would be particularly harmful to the very groups the program is intended to serve."
Worse still, the legislation prohibits public comment or input on drug negotiation processes, including the criteria used to set prices. Congress prohibiting input would create an exception to the standard practice by federal agencies of soliciting public comment. Further, in a Morning Consult poll the Alliance commissioned last September, only 16% viewed "direct negotiation" as the government setting prices for prescription drugs and refusing to cover them if the company does not agree—yet that is exactly what the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 would do.
Older adults expect and deserve their members of Congress to support proposals that address growing prescription drug out-of-pocket costs without requiring restricted access to care as a tradeoff. For these reasons, we urge the Senate to revise this latest proposal to not only address seniors' health and economic well-being, but to ensure all Medicare beneficiaries are treated equitably.
