Central Board of Direct Taxes (‘CBDT’) has launched an automated dedicated e-portal on the e-filing website of the Department to receive and process complaints in respect of violations of the Income- tax Act, 1961, Black Money (Undisclosed Foreign Income and Assets) and Imposition of Tax Act, 2015 and Prevention of Benami Transactions Act, 1988 (as amended).
The public can now file a Tax Evasion Petition through a link on the e-filing website of the Department under the head “File complaint of tax evasion/undisclosed foreign asset/ Benami property”. Upon the successful filing of the complaint, the Tax Department will allot a unique number to each complaint and the complainant would be able to view the status of the complaint on the Department’s website.
The said initiative aims to bring about enhanced ease of interaction with the Tax Department while strengthening its resolve towards e-governance.
