CONCLUSION

Compliance portal is designed by Income Tax Department for taxpayers to promote voluntary compliance. The due date for filing return of income for F.Y.2022-23 was 31/07/2023 and in case of audited return due date was 31/10/2023. The last date of filing belated return or Revised Return for F.Y.2022-23 was 31/12/2023. Since the dates of filing return has been expired, the taxpayer is left with the only option to file Updated Return. The Department is therefore reconciling the information available with ITR filed and in case of discrepancies it is sending notice to either provide appropriate information or file Updated Return. In case any action is not taken by taxpayer than it will further take steps of issuing assessment notices according to certain criteria set by Department. It is therefore advisable to take immediate steps and comply with the notices.

    I also received a similar message. More than the difference amount shown by the Income Tax Department is offered for tax by me in Row No B b vi of OS Schedule. But the mismatch campaign system has not picked this line item. The inbuilt explanations are not relevant in my case. Kindly help me.
    Thanking you in advance.

    I received a similar notice. I had shown interest in ” “SCHEDULE OS INCOME FROM OTHER SOURCES” of ITR2. Had a 10% deduction at the source before getting the amount credited and I submitted an ITR and got the refund. How to respond to the notice? PLs suggest

  3. PREM says:

    ITR filed with correct incomes of SB int, FDR Int, Interest from parties but ITR picks only FDR int value and there is NO OPTION in reconsiliation statement where income already offered but not picked by department. How to repond ????

    I received similar notice. I had shown the interest in ” “SCHEDULE OS INCOME FROM OTHER SOURCES”” of ITR2.
    The notice says ITR value to be zero. That’s wrong. There’s a no option in “Add Explanation” to mention that ITR value is wrong.
    What’s your suggestion?
