INDIA: In-Person Tax Assessments Abolished in Favour of Online Processing
Taxpayers (or their appointed representatives) will no longer be required to attend the offices of the country’s Income Tax Department for tax assessment or verification purposes. In order to facilitate this, all communication requiring clarifications and/or the submission of supporting documents will be issued via email or through the Income Tax Department’s online portal. Similarly, taxpayers will now be able to respond online to any such communications.
