Important updates:

1. You must check these 5 things in your Form 26AS

i) Information regarding Tax Deducted at Source for all income and Tax Collected at Source wherever applicable.

ii) Information related to specified financial transactions from ‘specified persons’, mutual funds, banks, bond issuers, etc.

iii) Information related to income-tax payments such as advance tax and self-assessment tax paid by the taxpayer.

iv) Information regarding tax demands and tax refunds by the IT department.

v) Information related to pending and completed income tax proceedings.

 

2. Income Tax refunds issued: Taxpayers get more than Rs 1 lakh crore in the first half of this fiscal

The Income Tax Department today said that it has issued refunds of over Rs 1.18 lakh crore to more than 33.54 lakh taxpayers between 1 April 2020 and 29 September 2020. Income tax refunds of Rs 32,230 crore have been issued in 31.75 lakh cases and corporate tax refunds of Rs 86,094 crore have been issued in 1.78 lakh cases.

3. New Tax Collected at Source (TCS) regime

The Income Tax Department issued guidelines for the applicability of TCS provision which requires an e-commerce operator to deduct a 1 percent tax on the sale of goods and services. The new Tax Collected at Source (TCS) regime will come into effect from October 1. The Finance Act, 2020 inserted a new section 194-O in the Income-tax Act 1961 which mandates that with effect from October 1, 2020, an e-commerce operator shall deduct income tax at the rate of 1 percent of the gross amount of sale of goods or provision of service or both, facilitated through its digital or electronic facility or platform

4. Scrip-wise reporting in ITR must only for LTCG exemption, not for day-trading, short-term gains: CBDT

The Central Board of Direct Taxes has clarified that there is no requirement for scrip wise reporting for day trading and short-term sale or purchase of listed shares in the filing of income tax return (ITR) in assessment year (AY) 2020-21.

The scrip wise details are needed while filing ITR for AY 2020-21 for reporting long-term capital gains (LTCG) for listed shares or specified units eligible for the benefit of grandfathering. The Finance Act, 2018 exempted gains made on the listed shares/specified units up to January 31, 2018, by introducing a grandfathering mechanism for computation of LTCG for these shares.

5. No need to fill Schedule 112A in ITR for stock trading, clarifies CBDT; but no respite for investors

If an investor redeems his/her investment in equity MF done through monthly SIP after 10 years, he/she will have to fill 7 columns in 240 rows for a single investment.

The CBDT, however, said that without scrip wise entries, taxpayers may not claim the grandfathering benefit properly.

Moreover, without separate entries, the income tax authorities can’t check the correctness of the claim, argues the CBDT. As a result, many returns will require to be audited, which may lead to unnecessary grievances/rectifications at a later stage.

6. Income tax: Faceless Appeals Scheme challenged in Delhi High Court

A petition has been filed in Delhi HC seeking a direction to the government to grant an opportunity of hearing to all taxpayers/assessees under the Faceless Appeals Scheme 2020. The petitioner has challenged the discretionary power of the Chief Commissioner or the Director-General of Income Tax in granting the chance of hearing to the assessee. In the matter, Delhi HC has issued notice to the Income-Tax department and a reply has been sought in four weeks. Matter to be heard on 15th December 2020.

7. Various Due date Extended

In view of constraints being faced by taxpayers due to COVID-19, CBDT further extends due dates for various compliances for FY 2019-20:

1) The due dt of furnishing Income Tax Returns (ITRs) for taxpayers whose accounts require to be audited has been extended to 31st, January 2021.

2) The due date for furnishing of ITRs for the taxpayers who are required to furnish a report in respect of international/specified domestic transactions has been extended to 31st January 2021.
