Top Stories Income Tax Return Filing Campaign gone Wrong: Taxpayers who already filed FY2022-23 ITRs Receive Notices The email Campaign of Income Tax Department has sent notices to assessees who already filed their return for FY 2022-2023, causing a wave of panic. By Manu Sharma – On December 18, 2023 5:39 pm – 2 mins read In a surprising development, the Income Tax Department has created a wave of confusion among taxpayers by issuing notices for filing returns, even to those who diligently completed the procedure before the due date. The situation has prompted Chartered Accountants to speak out, highlighting a mistake and urging authorities to rectify the issue promptly. The above two email attachments from the Income Tax Department have triggered the wave of panic among honest and diligent taxpayers. “Chartered accountants said a mistake has led to the situation but have demanded that notices be sent only to those who have not filed the returns”, said CA Abhishek Raja Ram in a Tweet on ‘X’.
The unexpected notices have caused widespread panic among taxpayers who believed they had fulfilled their obligations within the prescribed time frame. Shockingly, even those who diligently completed the filing procedure before the due date have not been spared from this administrative onslaught. As taxpayers find themselves shocked with the notice, the demand for immediate rectification echoes and the Income Tax Department is urged to revisit its approach, ensuring that notices are dispatched judiciously and rectifying the inadvertent errors that have caused distress among taxpayers. This incident serves as a poignant reminder of the critical need for continual improvement and vigilance in the administration of tax and economic reforms.
