New Feedback Mechanism in AIS

Earlier this month, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) rolled out new functionality in AIS enabling the display of the status of the information confirmation process.

As per the update, the taxpayers have been provided with the functionality to furnish feedback on every transaction displayed therein. This feedback mechanism is intended to help the taxpayer to comment on the accuracy of the information provided by the Source of such information.

In case of wrong reporting, the matter is taken up with the Source for their due confirmation, in an automated manner. The Ministry of Finance has also stated that the information confirmation is currently made functional concerning information furnished by Tax Deductors/Collectors and Reporting Entities. The new functionality is expected to boost transparency by displaying such information in AIS to the taxpayers.
