Serious processing error at CPC, Bengaluru: Numerous erroneous message of proposed adjustment U/s 143(1)(a) forwarded
CPC of the Income Tax India Official has made a significant & voluminous error. Incorrect notices regarding proposed adjustments under Section 143(1)(a) of the Income-tax Act have been sent to various assessee nationwide. The message is delivered to numerous taxpayers by mail.
All these notices state that the deduction under Section 80P cannot be claimed or allowed. Interestingly, these notices have been sent to taxpayers who haven’t even claimed any such deduction under Section 80P in their Income Tax returns for the Assessment Year 2023-24. Even the notice has been sent to the individuals, firms and Other AOP who are not even eligible for section 80P benefit. The taxpayers may recall that section 80P give the deduction to the co-operative societies only.
This is not the first time that an instance like this is happening. In the initial phase of its implementation also, similar types of errors have been committed.
The new income tax portal was developed by Infosys at a cost of Rs. 4242 Cr and is still not as taxpayers friendly as the earlier site was. The message has created mass level confusion amongst the taxpayers and tax professionals who have been trying to locate the mistakes in filing.
Hope the corrective mail will also be issued by the CPC about the error committed and inconvenience caused to the taxpayers.
