Don't harrass taxpayers, I-T officials told
November, 11th 2014

The Central Board of Direct Taxes on Friday issued 12 commandments to its field offices, asking them to stick to appointments, address grievances and avoid unnecessary harassment of taxpayers.

In an effort to usher in a customer-friendly regime, officers have been asked to observe cleanliness and punctuality, terming them "basic requirements of an efficient and taxpayer-centric organization. Similarly, they have been advised not to cancel or postpone an appointment, unless unavoidable, especially when an assessee is willing to attend a meeting.

Tax offices across the country have also been instructed to dispose of grievances within a stipulated time. "Any regime where taxpayers' grievances are not attended to in time may be considered adversarial," said the three-page note on "steps towards non-adversarial tax regime".

The instructions are the latest in a series of measures, starting with finance minister Arun Jaitley's Budget announcement on the issue, to address complaints of "tax terrorism", which also affected investments in the country. Earlier, CBDT chairman had written to officers with a series of dos and don'ts.

The note also mentions that officers should avoid fishing expeditions, which often tend to scare taxpayers. As a result, they have been asked to avoid a scrutiny mechanism which involves long and non-specific questionnaires. High-pitched assessments without proper basis are a strict no given that they "attract adverse attention". While instructions have been issued in the past too, the CBDT has now entrusted the task of monitoring to senior officers.

A few weeks ago, the revenue secretary had told a tax conference that the government will avoid high-pitched assessments, while suggesting that companies stay away from aggressive tax planning.
