Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Monday introduce the SMS alert service for Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) for salaried class and the CBDT will early offer this facility on a monthly basis.
Meeting reporters about the facility, Jaitley said salaried class cannot manage to pay tax twice or indulge in causes and hence they should be kept updated about their TDS deductions.
Hence tax payers will ease if they receive information through use of technology. So they can match the office payment slip and the SMS and at the end of the fiscal he will be clear about any possible tax dues, Finance Minister said.
He asked the CBDT to work towards making the wrong redressal system for TDS mismatch online so that there is no interface between the tax payer and the tax department.
Jaitley said e-Nivaran is functioning well for tax payers and the CBDT is taking several tax payer friendly initiave.
The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) will soon extend this SMS service to another 4.4 crore non-salaried tax payers.
