Salaried taxpayers to get SMS alerts on TDS deductions
October, 28th 2016

As many as 2.5 crore salaried taxpayers will now receive SMS alerts from the Income Tax department regarding their quarterly TDS deductions.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Monday launched the SMS alert service for Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) for salaried class and the CBDT will soon offer this facility on a monthly basis.

Briefing reporters about the facility, Jaitley said salaried class cannot afford to pay tax twice or indulge in litigations and hence they should be kept updated about their TDS deductions.

"Hence taxpayers will benefit if they receive information through use of technology. So they can match the office salary slip and the SMS and at the end of the fiscal he will be clear about any possible tax dues," Jaitley said.
He asked the CBDT to work towards making the grievance redressal system for TDS mismatch online so that there is no interface between the taxpayer and the tax department.

CBDT chairperson Rani Singh Nair said the tax department is encouraging people to register their mobile number on the e-filing website.

She said a taxpayer will initially receive a welcome message from the CBDT informing him about the facility and after that each assessee would be sent messages informing them about their respective TDS deductions.

Let this be seamless update otherwise it may lead to horrible pendency of mismatch data. Time will tell.... accurate information is mandatory otherwise no fun

The new step is an effort by the I-T department to directly communicate deposit of tax deducted through SMS alerts to salaried taxpayers. In case of a mismatch, they can contact their deductor for necessary correction.
Besides, SMS alerts will also be sent to deductors who have either failed to deposit taxes deducted to e-file their TDS returns by the due date.
