CBDT Chairman unveils New Features of Revamped Income Tax Website

The Chairman of Central Board Direct Taxes (CBDT) Nitin Gupta unveiled the revamped user-friendly income tax website at ‘Chintan Shivir’ organized by the Directorate of Income Tax (Systems) at Udaipur. The redesigned website stands as another step towards improved taxpayer services, continuing its mission to educate taxpayers and streamline tax adherence. With the aim of improving the taxpayer’s interaction and staying abreast of emerging technology, the Income Tax Department has redesigned its national website, www.incometaxindia.gov.in. This revamp includes a more user-friendly interface, additional features that offer value, and the incorporation of new modules. 

The newly updated website acts as a thorough collection of tax and associated information. It grants entry to Direct Tax regulations, numerous supplementary legislations, regulations, Income Tax Circulars, and Notifications, all interlinked and easily accessible. The platform includes a ‘Taxpayer Services Module’ that presents diverse tax utilities to aid individuals in submitting their income tax returns. 

The new ‘Mega Menu’ in the website facilitates new features and functionalities. For the convenience of the visitors to the website, all these new additions are explained through a guided virtual tour and new button indicators. The updated features enable users to contrast various Acts, Sections, Regulations, and Tax agreements. All pertinent content on the platform is now labelled with Income Tax sections for effortless browsing. 

Moreover, the interactive due date alerts feature includes reverse countdowns, informative tooltips, and direct links to relevant portals, simplifying the compliance process for taxpayers.
