However, this year the facility for online filing of returns has been made user-friendly with the advantage of pre-filled return forms. These E-filed forms also get electronically processed at the central processing centre in a speedy manner. Hence, the exemption provided during the last two years is not being extended for assessment year 2013-14.

      Retrun of excess tax deducted by DDOs to assessees from IT Deptt. is very very difficult.In many cases,it is not refunded. In my case,for example,for the AY 2006-07 & 07-08,the Deptt.slept over my request for Rs 3,000 [06-07]and Rs for like amount for the next AY [07-08].It all happened while I was in service at New Delhi.However,my inadvertent mistake while furnishing PAN # to my DDO,who filed my return in AY 2006-07 was pointed out through a letter with warning as per Act,was served to me in 2008 which I replied giving correct PAN #.So is the business in IT Deptt.It is,therefore,hard to expect anything from CBDT cosier to tax payers save becoming alert in one`s tax matter.

    Dear,
    I want to know e-filing is mandatory for which assessee .

  5. Ashish says:

    CBDT says e-filed forms get processed quickly. however returns and refunds of last year (AY 12-13) are still pending in case of many assesses. Will CBDT concentrate on providing better facilities to existing filers before wooing new filers.
