Income Tax Department Asks Taxpayers To Do This For Quick Tax Refund

|

In a place where the Income Tax Department of India allows taxpayers to claim an income tax refund in two ways i.e. through offline where taxpayers are required to download the applicable ITR, fill the form offline, save the generated XML file and then upload it and through online they can enter the relevant data on ITR 1 and ITR 4 online at e-filing portal and submit it, the tax department has now suggested a way to the taxpayers where they can claim their income tax refund quickly. Via its Twitter handle the department has said that "The Deptt requests taxpayers to respond online quickly so that ITRs in such cases of AY 20-21 can be processed expeditiously. The Deptt has also commenced processing of ITRs 1 & 4 for AY 21-22 & refunds, if any, will be issued directly to the bank account of the taxpayer."

The department has suggested that "To resolve pending refunds of AY 20-21, ITD is in the process of communicating with taxpayers, where response from taxpayers would be required in cases involving notices for prima facie adjustments, defects, adjustment u/s 245 & refund failure due to bank account mismatch."
