Income tax department developing a mobile app to fill tax returns.
“We are developing a mobile app which can be used by users for filing their income tax returns. There are some security related issues, which we will resolve soon,” Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) Chairperson Anita Kapoor said on Saturday after inaugurating ‘Taxpayers’ Lounge’ at the India International Trade Fair (IITF) here.
Filing tax returns via online mode has seen a sharp increase in recent years.
Talking about direct tax collections, Ms Kapoor said, “Collections are doing well and we are keeping our fingers crossed. The December collection of advance tax will actually give us a good idea.”
Rs. 7.98 lakh crore will be collected as direct tax in the current financial year.
The panel has clear terms of reference. They are expected to give their first report in January. They can give it earlier if they deem it proper. They have sufficient time,” she said.
Filling tax returns through mobile is an easy and a convenient way for the taxpayers.
