Income Tax department launches upgraded website for taxpayers

The Income Tax department has launched an upgraded version of its official web portal featuring better links for taxpayer services and grievance redressal.

The new website features a special link for ‘taxpayer services’ on the main page and it subsequently navigates the user to all important works that a person needs to get done from the tax department like getting a new PAN card, filing e-returns, checking refunds and registering grievances.

The website is also hosting, from the past, various links for use by taxpayers including a special section on new I-T circulars, notifications and laws.

The improved website of the department is being created and maintained by the systems wing of the department as the unit has been on a spree, for quite sometime now, to continuously make I-T processes easy for taxpayers so that they can perform their tasks over the internet rather than going to a tax office.

The new website has been made operational and a special section on tax FAQs for senior citizens and other class of taxpayers has also been brought out prominently.

The department has recently launched a pilot project to see if the lengthy scrutiny proceedings could be done over the e-mail even as it recently begun sharing information on social networking site Twitter with an exclusive handle — ‘IncomeTaxIndia_’.
