In an effort to make the tax process seamless, The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) Chairman Nitin Gupta launched the newly revamped website at the 'Chintan Shivir', organised by Udaipur's Directorate of Income Tax (Systems).
"In order to enhance taxpayer experience and keep pace with new technology, the Income Tax Department has revamped its National website 'www.Incometaxindia.Gov.In' with a user-friendly interface, value-added features, and new modules," the CBDT said in a statement.
The revamped website has been redesigned with a mobile-responsive layout. The website also has a 'Mega Menu' for content, with 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 new functionalities allow users to compare different Acts, sections, rules, and tax treaties. All relevant content on the site is now tagged with Income Tax sections for easy navigation.
Further, dynamic due date alerts functionality provides reverse countdowns, tooltips, and links to relevant portals to help taxpayers comply easily. The revamped website is another initiative to provide enhanced taxpayer services and will continue to educate taxpayers and facilitate tax compliance, the CBDT added.
