NEWS-BRIEF


F Self-assessed tax defaulters face action as CBDT keen to meet targets

The Government has decided to crackdown on corporates and individuals that have defaulted on payment of their self-assessment in the year in a bid to boost direct tax collections that are well below the target for the year.

Direct tax collections need to grow at 18 per cent. over the remaining five months of the fiscal 2009-10 ending March 2010 for the Government to achieve its direct tax target for the year.

The Central Board of Direct Taxes-the apex direct tax body that administers corporate tax, personal income-tax and wealth tax-has asked its field officials to crack down on companies that have not paid self-assessed tax for the year.

Corporate taxpayers could not only receive demand notices but also a visit from the taxman itself as the I-T Department gears up for increased surveys and searches to nab evaders and boost tax collections. Self assessment tax is the amount payable by the taxpayer if his tax liability as assessed by him is more than the advance tax paid by him.

The board has circulated a detailed list of taxpayers, the amount of tax due from them, tax exemption claimed for the field officers to carry out detailed investigations and collect due tax. E-filing of tax returns is mandatory for all corporates and assessees who have to be submitting audited results. Any delay in self assessment tax attracts a 1 per cent. a month interest levy for the delay and some penalty. The board's letter to the field comes in the backdrop of a dismal 3.92 per cent. growth in direct tax collections in first seven months (April-October 2009) of the financial year.

F Officers hearing transfer pricing cases kept out of dispute panel

To ensure impartiality in adjudication of transfer pricing disputes, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has decided that Commissioners associated with transfer pricing orders will not be part of the alternate dispute resolution panel. This panel is being set up by CBDT to resolve disputes arising from transfer pricing assessments.

Dispelling the apprehensions among senior tax professionals that the committee will be comprised predominantly senior officers who have powers to approve the transfer pricing assessments, CBDT chairman told that those Commissioners associated with transfer pricing assessments will be kept out of the panel.

The Union Budget had said that a collegium of Commissioners would be established for resolving tax disputes between India's tax authorities and multinational companies. The panel's decision is binding on the Income-tax Department that is not allowed to appeal against the order before the Income-tax Appellate Tribunal. However, the taxpayer is free to do so. The panel has the power to call for fresh evidence.

F Raise tax exemption limit on personal income : clamour ASSOCHAM

Industry body ASSOCHAM asked the Government to raise the tax exemption limit on personal income from Rs. 1.6 lakhs per annum to Rs. 4 lakhs per annum and for senior citizens up to Rs. 5 lakhs per annum.

"With favourable consideration of this proposal, taxpayers in low and middle income group, who could end up paying more tax than now, on account of removal of various exemptions and deductions under DTC, can benefit from raise in threshold limit as tax savings on account of increase in it could offset impact of removal of exemptions and deductions," the ASSOCHAM President said.

Meanwhile, the industry body has also urged the Government to bring in standard deduction of 50 per cent. of the salary or Rs. 2,40,000, whichever is less to balance out additional tax burden, which employees would be facing due to removal of various exemption.
