LETTER FROM DIT (SYSTEMS) - MEMBERS TO BE CAUTIOUS WHILE E-FILING INCOME-TAX RETURNS
Members may note that ICAI has received a letter from Directorate of Income-tax (Systems) requesting it to impart information regarding correct procedure of e-filing of returns. The following are the major concerns of the Department:-
a) ITR-V is not received or is belated for the assessment year at CPC
b) ITR-V is not signed by the tax payer
Members may note that to eliminate the above mentioned problems, the Income-tax Department has started a drive through media, press release, instructions and chambers to increase awareness among the tax payers. Although, we are sure that the members are aware of the e-filing process, it is our responsibility to bring, the following initiatives taken by the Department in this regard, to your notice:
A help desk has been set up for information, held or any assistance. The taxpayers can call 1800 180 1961 or 1800 425 2229.
They can also know the status of their e-returns through e-filing website under “Know your ITR V status”. The status of receipt of ITR-V can be viewed at e-filing website https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in. The ITR-V form can be downloaded from the same website.
