Taxpayers should pay special attention to the mobile app and portal for filing income tax returns from June 7. According to the Income Tax Department, the portal www.incometax.gov.in will be more attractive and simple. The filing of tax returns for the last financial year will be done through this new portal. The information in the old portal is being integrated with the new portal. As part of this, the old portal www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in will not be available from June 1 to 6.
The Income Tax Department will not restrict any transaction from June 1 to June 6. Also, hearings on complaints will start from June 10.
The new portal promises that taxpayers will be refunded immediately upon filing a return.
Another feature is that you can see all the things that taxpayers have done, should do, and left to do on a single dashboard. This will make it easier for taxpayers to follow up.
The new portal will have the facility to file returns online without assistance.
There will be a chatbot to clear the doubts of the taxpayers. That is, when doubt is typed, it is immediately answered by an automated system.
In addition, there will be questions and answers and video tutorials covering all kinds of questions.
A mobile app that includes all the features of the online portal will also be available.
The new portal will also have the facility to pay tax online.
Taxpayers can pay tax using UPI, Credit Card, RTGS, and NEFT.
The new mobile app will cause the tax filing process to crash. Deploying a chatbot and assigning a live agent to resolve doubts are welcome. The Income Tax Department has been simplifying the procedures related to income tax for the last several years. The latest developments in this direction are the formation of a new portal.
