The order has asked Assessing Officers of each region to take “immediate steps” and reduce the grievance of taxpayers.
CBDT has instructed the Income Tax department to expedite cases of TDS mismatch and reduce taxpayers grievances in this regard. The instructions have been issued after a review of the Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) subject by Central Board of Direct Taxes Chairperson Atulesh Jindal sometime back.
“The taxpayers are facing problems due to mismatch of TDS/other taxes. These problems may be due to the non-reporting of TDS and uploading the TDS details improperly by their deductors. As a result, demand notices are being sent to the taxpayers due to non-availability of the tax credits for claim in Income Tax Returns,” a recent CBDT communication to the taxman said.
A senior official said the Central Processing Centre (CPC) in Bengaluru is not able to process some refunds of taxpayers because of the pending mis-match entries. The order has asked Assessing Officers of each region to take “immediate steps” and reduce the grievance of taxpayers.
The CBDT, in the recent past, has taken a number of steps to fasten the issuance of refunds to the tax paying public and this directive is a initiative in this regard.
