More Forms for e-ITR, more security


The Central Board of Direct Taxes announced the electronic filling and filing of Forms 1 and 4S for income tax returns. Furthering the shift to electronic filing of returns and appeals before Commissioners (Appeals), the Department has been piecemeal introducing e-forms. So far, Form 35 has been introduced for e-filing of returns and several forms for e-filing transactions by a non-resident entity have become effective 1 April 2016.

To complement its e-filing efforts, the CBDT has also taken steps to secure taxpayers’ electronic accounts against fraudulent access. With the “E-filing Vault”, the Department has introduced multiple-step authentication for taxpayers accessing their accounts.
