No need to visit any office or meet the taxman: Income Tax

With the launch of the faceless assessment scheme, income tax assessees who have got scrutiny notices do not need to go visit the any office or meet any official.

If you get a scrutiny notice from the Income Tax Department, don’t worry! No need to go to the IT Office or meet the local IT Officer! Use the #FacelessAssessment Scheme & file your reply online. No physical interface between taxpayer & IT Dept, the income tax department said on Twitter.



Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) Chairman Mody said all such notices need to be responded to electronically without the requirement of visiting a tax office or meeting any official.

A central computer picks up tax returns for scrutiny based on risk parameters, mismatch, and then allots them randomly to a team of officers. This allotment is reviewed by officers at another randomly selected location and only if concurred, a notice is sent by the centralised computer system.
