The thought of getting a Section 143 (1) income tax notice for wrong information provided in the income tax return (ITR) may make you worried. While it is a document that shows that the Income Tax (I-T) Department might have caught you on the wrong foot, you don't need to panic about it.

Do not delay you response

If you receive such a notice from the I-T department, don't delay and reply it as soon as possible.

The tax notice under Section 143(1) is called 'Notice of Demand'.

It means, if you have any outstanding tax liability, you should pay it within 20 days of receiving the notice.

If you delay your response and 30 days have passed, you will have to pay monthly interest at the rate of one per cent.

  2. If you click on it, a new page will open where you will have to fill PAN number, ITR acknowledgment number and captcha code. After submitting the ITR, the I-T Department sends the acknowledgment number to your registered mail ID.
  3. After submitting all these details, the status of ITR processing will be known. If the return has not been processed, the screen will show 'Return Submitted and Verified'. If it has been processed, the screen will show Return Processed and Refund Paid.
  4. If you log in to the Income Tax website, you will find Filing of Income Tax Return and View Returns/Forms on the dashboard below.
  5. If you click on the second option, a new page will open in which your PAN number will be uploaded and below the assessment year and income tax return will have to be selected.

ITR Notice: Demand Notice (under Section 156)

An income tax notice under Section 156 is issued against the outstanding dues, interest, penalty, etc.

Such notices are generally sent after post assessment of the income tax return.

The assessment officer issues this notice; gives instructions for the due amount; and asks the taxpayer to deposit the outstanding amount on time to avoid any penalty.
