I-T dept sends letters to 35,000 assessees for not filing returns

The government plans to collect over Rs6.68 lakh crore from direct taxes in the current fiscal, up from Rs5.65 lakh crore in the previous fiscal

Continuing its drive against non-filers, the Income Tax (I-T) Department Monday sent letters to another 35,000 such assesses for not filing tax returns, taking the total number of these letters to 1.75 lakh.

 

The I-T Department has identified around 12 lakh assessees who have not filed their returns.

 

“As part of its ongoing initiative, the I-T Department has sent letters to another batch of 35,000 non-filers,” the finance ministry said in a statement.

 

With this, the Department has now issued letters to 1.75 lakh high priority assessees.

 

“The response to this initiative has been very encouraging and a large number of taxpayers have paid taxes and filed I-T returns,” the statement said.

 

A compliance management cell has been set-up to monitor return filing and tax payment of the target segment, it added.

 

The letter contained the summary of the information of financial transaction(s) along with a customised response sheet.

 

The government plans to collect over Rs6.68 lakh crore from direct taxes in the current fiscal, up from Rs5.65 lakh crore in the previous fiscal.

 

Meanwhile, top I-T officials will meet in New Delhi for two days beginning tomorrow to discuss ways to augment revenue collection and widen tax base.

 

Preliminary assessment of results of the letters sent show that a large number of taxpayers have filed return of income and paid self assessment tax.

 

The finance ministry further asked tax payers to disclose their true income and pay appropriate taxes within the current financial year.

What is the percentage of letters sent to the total defaulters? What is the demand raised on both the first (highest prioritiesed) sent notice and the latest sent notice?

The IT dept.has to clarify the responses to their letters of demands. Most of them are sent to assesses who have turned senior citizens and not liable to tax, some who have filed returns only to claim TDS wrongly deducted, The CPC Bengaluru has been left right and centre dishing out computerised letters without ascertaining from the respective assessing officers the status of the assessment.
In the bargain the assessee gets no response from both and left high and dry.
The FM by crying on the roof tops of the thousands of letters issued and crores of demands raised needs to come out with the numbers of positive responses and amounts collected.
