Pilot project has been started by the Income Tax Department for sending notices, getting replies and to carry out tax assessments with the help of email in order to make an attempt to make sure taxpayers don’t have to visit I-T offices physically.
Five locations including Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad and Chennai has been identified by the Central Board of Direct Taxes(CBDT) and 100 initial cases for e-hearing.
Cases covered under the pilot project would be those which have been selected for scrutiny on the basis of AIR/CIB information or non-matching with 26AS-data.
Consent of taxpayers will be considered and cases of willing taxpayers will be included in this project. Official e-mail Ids will be used by tax officials.
