CBDT Circular No.8

Important CBDT Circular Sets Out Procedure For Speedy Resolution Of Taxpayer's Grievances Regarding Outstanding Tax Demands

The CBDT has issued Circular No. 8 of 2015 dated 14.05.2015 setting out the detailed procedure that has to be followed by taxpayers in response to an arrear demand from the AO. The Ministry of Finance has also issued a press release stating that the said Circular is because the Income Tax Department has taken note of grievances of taxpayers arising on account of outstanding tax demand which may be inaccurate due to non-reporting or delayed reporting of TDS by deductors leading to mismatch between the claim and data available with the Department, non-posting of challans, non-disposal of rectification applications, incorrect details of income or pre-paid taxes reported by taxpayer etc. It is emphasized that the Income Tax Department is committed to early and satisfactory resolution of taxpayers' grievances. It is also stated that about 95% of entries of Demand involve demand up to Rs. 1 lakh and about 90% of such assessees are Individuals and HUFs. It is expected that majority of the grievances of small taxpayers can be redressed by following the procedure prescribed in the circular.ivinayaka Residency,
