Income tax department's clarification on refund mails
The income tax department said these reminder emails are for the benefit of taxpayers as it seeks them to confirm their outstanding demand, their bank accounts and reconciliation of defect/mismatch prior to issue of refund.
The taxman has appealed to all those receiving such emails to login to their e-filing account and respond for refund confirmation immediately.
"It is clarified that these are the necessary routine process related communications to the taxpayers to seek response on defective ITRs, prima facie adjustments and where confirmation is sought about certain claims made by them. In all such cases, a quick response from the taxpayer would enable the I-T Department to process their refunds expeditiously," the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) said in a statement.
