Increase in Number of Tax Payers in the Last Three Years
The numbers of taxpayers have increased in the country during the last three years. The number of income-tax assessees (taxpayers) for past three years is as under:
|Assessment year||Number of assessees*|
*the data is based on the number of income-tax returns entered in the System plus number of cases where tax has been deducted at source from the income of the taxpayer but the taxpayer has not filed the return of income.
This was stated by Shri Jayant Sinha, Minister of State in Ministry of Finance in written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today. (PIB)
