CBDT launches e-portal for filing complaints!!

To encourage citizen participation as a stakeholder in enforcing tax evasion, the Central Board of Direct Taxes has launched an automated dedicated e-portal on the department's e-filing website to receive and process tax evasion complaints.

Departments can now file a tax evasion petition under the heading “File Tax Failure / Undeclared Foreign Assets / Anonymous Assets” under the link on the e-filing website under the head “File complaint of tax evasion/undisclosed foreign asset/ benami property”.

The facility allows for filing of complaints by persons who are existing PAN/Aadhaar holders as well as for persons having no PAN /Aadhaar. After an OTP based validation process (mobile and/or email), the complainant can file complaints in respect of violations of the Income- tax Act, 1961, Black Money (Undisclosed Foreign Assets and Income) Imposition of Tax Act, 1961 and Prevention of Benami Transactions Act (as amended) in three separate forms designed for the purpose.

Upon successful filing of the complaint, the Department will allot a unique number to each complaint and the complainant would be able to view the status of the complaint on the Department’s website. This e-portal is yet another initiative of the Income Tax Department to bring about enhanced ease of interaction with the Department, while strengthening its resolve towards e-governance.
