Annexure-C:Salient features of ‘E-Proceeding’ 

  • As part of e-governance initiative to facilitate conduct of assessment proceedings electronically, Income-tax Department has launched ‘E-Proceeding’ facility. It is a simple way of communication between the Department and assessee, through electronic means, without the necessity to visit Income-tax Office for conduct of assessment proceedings. This taxpayer friendly measure would substantially reduce the compliance burden for the assessee.
  • In assessment proceeding, ‘E-Proceeding’ would enable seamless flow of Letter(s)/Notice(s), Questionnaire(s), Order(s) etc. from Assessing Officer to the account of concerned assessee in e-Filing website. On receipt of Departmental communication, assessee would be able to submit the response along with attachments by uploading the same, on e-Filing portal. The response submitted by the assessee would be viewed by the Assessing Officer electronically in Income Tax Business Application (ITBA) module. This would, besides saving precious time of the taxpayer, would also provide a 24X7 anytime/anywhere convenience to submit response to the Departmental queries in course of assessment proceedings.
  • Assessee would retain complete information of all e-submissions made during the course of assessment proceedings through ‘E-Proceeding’ facility for reference & record purpose in his e-Filing portal account.
  • This initiative is environment friendly as assessment proceedings would become paperless.
  • Assessees who are not yet having an account on the e-Filing website of the Income-tax Department, may get themselves registered by following simple instructions in the e-Filing website (incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in).
