The Income Tax Department seeks suggestions on e-filing of I-T returns for the AY 2009-10 to make the e-filing website, software and functionalities more user-friendly and robust. Apart from general suggestions, specific suggestions on website look and feel, functionalities and facilities, white papers and technical papers are also welcome. Technical suggestions on XML schema, digital signatures, security, web services are also solicited. Suggestions and documents (in word format preferably) may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org .
While the Income Tax Department would try to incorporate as many suggestions as possible as a guidance for the design for AY 2009-10, it cannot not assure that all suggestions or changes would be incorporated and nor can it elaborate or give reasons for non-inclusion of any suggestion or change. Any submission to the Income Tax Department as above, would become the property of the Department and the Department would be free to use the same in whatever manner it chooses. Therefore, care maybe taken not to submit any technical / white paper which may be copyrighted material.
