There would be no physical interface between the tax payers and the tax officers.
Union Minister for finance & Corporate Affairs Nirmala Sitharaman will inaugurate National e-Assessment Centre ( NeAC) in New Delhi on 7th of October in the presence of Anurag Singh Thakur, Minister of State for finance & Corporate Affairs .
The setting up of National e-Assessment Centre (NeAC) of the Income Tax Department is a momentous step towards the larger objectives of better taxpayer service, reduction of taxpayer grievances in line with Prime Minister’s vision of ‘Digital India’ and promotion of Ease of Doing Business.
Under the new system, Tax Payers have received notices on their registered emails as well as on registered accounts on the web portal www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in with real time alert by way of SMS on their registered mobile number, specifying the issues for which their cases have been selected for scrutiny.
The replies to the notices can be prepared at ease by the tax payers at their own residence or office and be sent by email to the National e-Assessment Centre by uploading the same on the designated web portal.
