Income tax payers can now receive face-to-face tax assessment, fines, and complaint status related to e-mail. For this purpose, the Income Tax Department has launched three fully dedicated email IDs.
The Income Tax Department said the purpose of the tax charter was to make services to taxpayers better and transparent. The department tweeted through its official Twitter handle that the Department of Income Tax has launched a dedicated e-scheme under the faceless scheme to file complaints regarding pending cases, in order to further improve taxpayer services in accordance with the taxpayer’s charter. The id is created.
The department said taxpayers should be able to easily file complaints through e-mail IDs. Under the face-to-face assessment system, taxpayers are not required to visit the department office for income tax related work or to visit any officer of the department. A central electronic-based system does all this. With the issuance of an e-mail address, taxpayer benefits will increase compared to before because they will be able to resolve their tax complaint sooner.
What are the three e-mail addresses
Fixed a late fee issue
Taxpayers can now file an Income Tax Return (ITR) on the new portal. The Income Tax Department has updated its portal. Now the problem of late fees is over. The CA noted that after July 31, ITR began filing a late fee under section 234F from taxpayers filing an extension notification in the e-filing portal. Now the department has updated its portal so that the portal does not charge late fees. The income tax filing deadline has been extended from July 31st to September 30th due to this year’s corona epidemic.
21.32 lakh taxpayers have been reimbursed
CBDT paid income tax refund of Rs 45,896 crore to 21.32 lakh taxpayers between 1st April 2021 and 02 August 2021. Income of Rs 13,694 crore has been paid by the Income Tax department in 20,12,802 cases. At the same time, Rs.
Increased use of technology
The Income Tax Department is rapidly increasing the use of technology in its services to provide better service to taxpayers. This has facilitated return filing by refund. Significantly, on August 13 last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the ‘Honor the Honest’ platform. Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister said many reforms have been made in this forum, including face-to-face assessment, face-to-face plea and taxpayer’s charter. The faceless appraisal and taxpayer’s charter was launched the same day but the faceless appellate system was enacted nationwide on September 25, 2020.
The faceless assessment benefited
There are many advantages of faceless assessment in income tax related work. With the introduction of this facility, the connection between taxpayers and tax department officials has been reduced to a minimum. However, these do not include international tax and black money law appeals, serious fraud, widespread tax fraud, sensitive and searchable cases. In this case the taxpayer may be called. Faceless assessment has made tax collection transparent, fast, and free of corruption. In view of its success, the faceless appeal facility was launched on 25 September 2020. Under this, the authority of the tax authorities was reduced and power was vested in the hands of the taxpayer. To make tax filing faster, transparent and rigging free, a face-to-face appeal service was launched.
