Income tax account - email id & mobile no

Page no : 2


The problem we are having is that its going to be time consuming to create email ids of hundreds of clients and validating their e- filing accounts with their mobile pins.

Since both the pins( email and moblie) are valid only for that session, we have to ask the client to forward us the mobile pin as soon as he receives it. By the time he receives the pin and sends it to us sometimes the web page expires. So, we have to do the exercise all over again.

In future, It may be made compulsary that the email/ mobile number in the ITR returns should not be used for more that 4 assesses. That will increase the problems.

Income Tax E Filing: How to USE same E Mail ID for more than 4 times!!!

For E filing of Income Tax Return, assessee is compulsorily required to get its Email ID registered and each Email is restricted to be used for 4 times only. This has resulted in great trouble for Income Tax Practitioner (CA's, Advocates, Consultants) who were required to open several new Email ID. It means if any consultant has to file 400 IT Return, he has to maintain and operate 100 E Mail ID's!!!

Here is the SOLUTION  Open a gmail account (if not having one) or any other domain which ignore . (dot) in the email ID. Say my gmail ID is manoj76ag @ gmail.com. Now, because gmail admin ignore dot within ID, if anyone send email to manoj.76ag @ gmail.com or manoj76.ag @ gmail.com or m.a.n.o.j76ag @ gmail.com or in any permutation and combination, it will be treated as same ID by gmail and i will receive all mails at one ID!!! angel. However,www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in will consider all these IDs as different IDs. Effectively, you can use same email several times!!! Hope this will SAVE you lot of troubles. smileyENJOY E Filing yes

I heard a news that it has now been extended upto 10 Assessee's. Is it true? Has anyone verified it?

It remains to be seen if the steps followed by IT Deptt. to directly reach/communicate with the assessee would eventually serve its purpose or would further add to the ever burgeoning problem of bribery & corruption in the Deptt. (The Deptt. would now possess the contact details and Email IDs of assessee). Similar instances have been experienced in VAT Deptt. where the assessee has faced harassment from Deptt. officials for deposit of March VAT before 31st March to fulfil department target of revenue collection in a Financial Year.

Respected Members Now CBDT allows 1 mobile no & 1 mail id for 10 assessees / user accounts ( previous one for 4 assessees ) for e filing purpose. It's a genuine news. Regards

बिभाग की यह कोशिश रिश्वत को बढावा देने वाली साबित होगी। अब आयकर अधिकारी मोबाइल पर करदाताओ को डरआवेंगे।

No PIN (cell/ email)numbers are sent to assesses for updating contacts from yesterday onwards (9/7/14). The efiling helpline is blocked. Any HELP ?
