The Income Tax Department encourages those who received notices regarding discrepancies in their Income Tax Returns for the assessment year 2021-22 (financial year 2020-21) to file updated returns by March 31, 2024. This applies specifically to individuals identified through the e-verification scheme due to either mismatched or missing information.
The tax department additionally stated that individuals who haven’t filed Income Tax Returns for the assessment year 2021-22, but the department possesses information on specific high-value financial transactions related to them, are also required to file updated returns after careful examination.
“In cases where ITRs for A.Y. 2021-22 have not been filed and, the Department has information of specified high-value financial transactions, the same also needs to be examined,” the tax department statement read.
To ensure transparency and facilitate compliance, the Income Tax Department, under the e-verification scheme-2021, is contacting taxpayers via their registered email addresses. Additionally, they encourage taxpayers to access their Annual Information Statement (AIS) through the department’s e-filing portal. This AIS provides a comprehensive overview of their financial information, allowing them to identify any inconsistencies with their ITRs and file updated returns (ITR-U) if needed.
In the spirit of transparency and fostering voluntary compliance, the tax department has incorporated this information into the AIS module of the e-filing portal. This allows taxpayers to easily access and review their financial records, promoting accurate ITR filing.
