Income Tax department issues revised instruction on action against officers for high-pitched assessments
The income tax department on Thursday said it has issued revised instruction, which provides for initiation of suitable administrative action against the officer concerned, in cases of high-pitched assessments.
In 2015, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) had provided for the constitution of ‘local committees to deal with taxpayer grievances from high-pitched scrutiny assessment’ in each principal commissionerate region. Considering the implementation of faceless assessment regime, the CBDT has now issued a revised instruction regarding constitution and functioning of these committees.
