Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has said that all the glitches and hiccups with

online filing of income tax returns have been resolved.

JB Mohapatra, who is the Chairman of CBDT has said that all the glitches and

hiccups regarding filing of income tax returns have been resolved and on an

average two lakhs fifty thousand income tax returns are being filed per day.

To promote trust and foster awareness, a ‘Taxpayers’ Lounge’ has been set up

by The Income Tax Department on Sunday at the India International Trade Fair.

The Taxpayers’ Lounge was inaugurated by Mohapatra in order to increase

awareness regarding the various services that are being provided by the

department to taxpayers and to facilitate compliance with the various income

tax rules and regulations.

As per a statement, the Taxpayers’ Lounge seeks to promote an atmosphere of

trust between the Department and the Taxpayers and also to aware them about

the initiatives that has been taken by the Department in recent time and the

Lounge will be at the IITF till November 27.

queries. Assistance in queries related to e-Filing and Form 26AS would also be

the taxpayers.

e-filing portal. Last month, the list of high-value financial transactions has been
