? The Income Tax Department is going to launch its new e-filing portal www.incometax.gov.in on 7th June, 2021.
??♀️ The new e-filing portal (www.incometax.gov.in) is aimed at providing taxpayer convenience and a modern, seamless experience to taxpayers:
??♂️ New taxpayer friendly portal integrated with immediate processing of Income Tax Returns(ITRs) to issue quick refunds to taxpayers;
??♀️ All interactions and uploads or pending actions will be displayed on a single dashboard for follow-up action by taxpayer;
? Free of cost ITR preparation software available online and offline with interactive questions to help taxpayers fill ITR even without any tax knowledge, with pre-filling, for minimizing data entry effort;
☎️ New call center for taxpayer assistance for immediate answers to taxpayer queries with FAQs, Tutorials, Videos and chatbot/live agent;
? All key portal functions on desktop will be available on Mobile App which will be enabled subsequently for full anytime access on mobile network;
⏳ New online tax payment system on new portal will be enabled subsequently with multiple new payment options using netbanking, UPI, CreditCard and RTGS/NEFT from any account of taxpayer in any bank, for easy payment of taxes.
? In preparation for this launch and for migration activities, the existing portal of the Department at www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in would not be available from1st June, 2021 to 6th June, 2021.
? In order to avoid any inconvenience to taxpayers, the Department will not fix any compliance dates during this period.
? Further, directions have been issued to fix hearing of cases or compliances only from 10th June,2021 onwards, to give taxpayers time to respond on the new system.
? Taxpayers are encouraged to complete all their urgent tasks involving any submission, upload or downloads before 1stJune, 2021 to avoid any difficulty during the blackout period.
? The Department requests the patience of all taxpayers and other stakeholders during the switchover to the new e-filing portal and the subsequent initial period while they get familiarized with the new system.
? This is another initiative by CBDT towards providing ease of compliance to its taxpayers and other stakeholders.
