Intimation under section 143(1) - Income Tax
Intimation received u/s 143(1) is not a Notice but a communication received from the income tax department. Once the assessee files his income tax return, the income tax department does a preliminary assessment. This includes verifying arithmetical errors, any incorrect claim in the return, the difference in tax calculation, verification of tax payment etc. This letter basically matches the calculations in the Income Tax Return filed with the calculations computed by the income tax department.
