All service providers are to file their Service Tax returns for April –Sep. 2009 on or before Oct. 26 to avoid late fee. According to Assistant Commissioner of Central Excise and Service Tax A. Mani Maran, the date has been extended by a day, as Oct. 25 happens to be a closed holiday. The service providers also have to provide their e-mail Ids to the department for all future communication.
