Direct tax arrears jump 94% in 3 years
May, 22nd 2013

Though the revenue demand in tax cases have gone up dramatically — arrears in direct taxes increased in FY13 to R4,82,027 crore from R3,33,079 crore in FY12 and R2,48,927 crore in FY11, in indirect taxes it increased to R1,03,975 crore in FY13 from R33,791 crore in FY09 and service tax arrears registered a ten-fold rise in FY13 — the success of the revenue department in the courts has improved only marginally, in some cases gone down drastically.

In direct taxes, of the 20,884 cases disposed of at the income-tax appellate tribunals (ITAT) in FY12, 13,656 were filed by the department. In case of direct taxes, the number of appeals filed by the assessees is more than the number filed by the department, the outcome remains the same at various appellate authorities .

Now the government has decided to look at ways to reduce the number of cases. Planning Commission deputy chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia last week indicated that the government had initiated discussions on constituting an internal mechanism for settling disputes with the private sector.

This is after a parliamentary panel on finance in its report said, "As regards tax arrears, both direct and indirect taxes, the committee finds that the situation is becoming grimmer by the day, and recommends urgent, time-bound and concrete action-plan to clear the backlog and realize revenue dues".

The data on the success rate of the department at different appellate bodies during FY10 and FY12 shows that at the ITAT level, out of a total of 6,674 cases, only 23% of the cases filed by the taxpayers were decided in favour of the department — a 35% jump in FY12. At the high court level, the success rate in cases filed by the assessees improved from 26% in FY10 to 36% in FY12. However, in the Supreme Court, the success rate dropped to 14% in FY12 from 42% in FY11.
