Income tax department's information utilisation deficient: CAG
May, 01st 2013

There are deficiencies in the income tax department's utilisation of information related to taxation and sometimes available details are either inadequate or incorrect, says a report by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG).

These observations are part of the auditor's report on strengthening the tax base through the use of information tabled in Parliament on Tuesday.

These findings come at a time when the government, hard pressed for funds, is looking at ways to bolster the tax base. Official auditor CAG also came across cases where incorrect information was transmitted to assessing officers (AOs).
