Maintaining transparency and clarity with the tax authorities is paramount in the realm of taxation. Yet, there can be instances when the Income Tax Department may have queries, doubts, or require additional documentation about the Income Tax Returns (ITR) filed by an individual or an entity. For the Assessment Year (AY) 2023-24, the process remains comprehensive and intricate, necessitating a thorough understanding for every taxpayer.

The Income Tax Department, for various reasons, issues notices to taxpayers. It’s pivotal to understand that receiving a notice doesn’t always indicate a discrepancy or misconduct on the taxpayer’s part. Some announcements are routine, while others could be due to differences in the ITR field. Regardless, they establish an official communication between the tax authority and the taxpayer.

Notice under Section 143(2)

If the assessing officer (AO) believes it is necessary or expedient to make sure the assessee/ taxpayer has not understated the income, has not computed an excessive loss, or has not underpaid the tax in any way, they may be served with a notice under Section 143(2) of the Income Tax Act.

“The AO may by such notice require the taxpayer to either attend the office of the AO or to produce any evidence on which the taxpayer may rely in support of the return,” adds Dr Surana.

According to Dr Surana, a notice under Section 245 of the IT Act may be issued to the individual taxpayer. Their unpaid taxes shall be subtracted from the refund due if the refund becomes due to the taxpayer under the provisions of the IT Act, and such taxpayer also has outstanding tax liability concerning previous financial years.

Soni advises taxpayers to dispute the claim and provide support if necessary.

Notice for defective return under Section 139(9)

A return may be deemed faulty for any reason, including if it contains inaccurate or contradictory information.

To inform the taxpayer of the fault, the income tax department may issue a notice according to Section 139(9) of the Income Tax Act.

According to experts, the taxpayer must correct the error within 15 days (or any extended time limit) of receiving the notification in this situation. The return will be deemed invalid if the problem is not fixed within the allotted time.
