Tax notices, letters to carry unique Id from October 1

New Delhi, Aug 14 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 8/14/2019 12:54:47 PM IST

Starting October 1, 2019, all letters and notices from the income tax department will carry a computer-generated Document Identification Number (DIN) which will be verifiable on the department’s e-filing portal.

According to Economic Times, further, any communication from the department without this DIN will be treated as invalid. Manually issued communications will be allowed only with specific permission and in specified circumstances. Even when such manual communications are sent these would have to be regularised on the tax department’s portal within 15 days from date of issue, according to a press release issued by the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) here today.

This move is aimed at improving accountability and increasing transparency in tax administration. It is expected that this move would also help tax payers detect fake notices and letters as the notice would be verifiable on the e-filing portal.

The press release states: The CBDT has decided to attach a Documentation Identification Number (DIN) to each of its communication from 1st October 2019, be it a notice, order, summon, letter or any other correspondence. Any communication without a computer generated DIN would be treated as invalid and shall be deemed to have never been issued. All such communications would be verifiable on the e-filing portal.
