Service tax amnesty target modest despite vast scope
March, 12th 2013

The amnesty scheme announced for service tax evaders in the 2013-14 Budget is likely to net the exchequer R400 crore, going by the conservative estimate of finance minister P Chidambaram. The estimate looks very modest, considering the fact that 65% of the $1.8-trillion economy accounts for services and, by the minister’s own admission, 10 lakh of the total 17 lakh registered service taxpayers have stopped filing returns.
In the first three quarters of the current fiscal, service tax evasion of R9,875 crore was detected, 20% of which has been recovered.

Supply of manpower is another service where the offence is widespread.

In view of the widespread tax evasion in these sectors, the government had last year introduced partial reverse charge of service
