Income Tax Department has launched its new e-filing portal on June 07, 2021. This new portal can be accessed through www.incometax.gov.in.
This new e-filing portal aims to provide a modern, seamless and more convenient experience to the taxpayers.
According to the Finance Ministry, this new taxpayer friendly portal has been integrated with the objective of instant processing of income tax returns and quick refunds to the taxpayers.
This new portal will display all interactions and uploaded or pending tasks on a single dashboard for follow up action by the taxpayer. It will also act as a one-stop center for all such works.
In addition, it provides a free ITR preparation software with interactive questions to assist the taxpayers.
This portal will enable taxpayers to proactively update their profile to provide certain details of income including salary, house property and profession, which will be used in pre-filing of their ITR.
It will also enable pre-filing with salary income, interest, dividend and capital gains after the TDS and SFT details are uploaded and the due date is June 30, 2021.
This new portal will also include a new Call Center for Taxpayer Support, so that queries of taxpayers can be answered quickly. It will also provide detailed FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions), User Manuals, Videos and Chatbots/Live Agents.
It will also include all functional processes like filing Income Tax Forms, engaging tax professionals and responding to notices in faceless inquiry or appeal.
