CBDT has instructed the Income Tax department to expedite cases of TDS mismatch and reduce taxpayers grievances in this regard.
The instructions have been issued after a review of the Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) subject by Central Board of Direct Taxes Chairperson Atulesh Jindal sometime back.
"The taxpayers are facing problems due to mismatch of TDS/other taxes. These problems may be due to the non-reporting of TDS and uploading the TDS details improperly by their deductors. As a result, demand notices are being sent to the taxpayers due to non-availability of the tax credits for claim in Income Tax Returns," a recent CBDT communication to the taxman said.
A senior official said the Central Processing Centre (CPC) in Bengaluru is not able to process some refunds of taxpayers because of the pending mis-match entries.
The order has asked Assessing Officers of each region to take "immediate steps" and reduce the grievance of taxpayers.
The CBDT, in the recent past, has taken a number of steps to fasten the issuance of refunds to the tax paying public and this directive is a initiative in this regard.
