Income Tax launches e-Sahyog - a digital initiative

The “e-Sahyog” project launched on a pilot basis, is aimed at reducing compliance cost, especially for small taxpayers. The objective of “e-Sahyog” is to provide an onlinemechanism to resolve mismatches in Income-tax returns to taxpayers whose returns have not been selected for scrutiny, without visiting the Income Tax Office. Under this initiative the Department will provide an end to end e-service using SMS, e-mails to inform the taxpayers of the mismatch. The taxpayer will simply need to visit the e-filing portal and log in with their user-ID and password to view mismatch related information and submit online response on the issue. The responses submitted online by the taxpayers will be processed and if the response and other information are found satisfactory as per automated closure rules, the issue will be closed. The taxpayer can check the updated status by logging in to the e-filingportal.
