CBDT Issues New Guidelines for Issuing Notices Under Section 148 of the Income Tax Act

Last updated: 09 July 2024

In a significant move aimed at streamlining the process of issuing notices under Section 148 of the Income Tax Act, 1961, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has issued new guidelines via F.No.299/10/2022-Dir(Inv.III)/1522 dated June 26, 2024. These guidelines are set to bring clarity and consistency in the handling of cases involving income that has escaped assessment.


Implications for Taxpayers

The issuance of these new guidelines marks a significant step towards a more structured and transparent process for handling cases of income escaping assessment. Taxpayers can expect a reduction in arbitrary notices and a more predictable timeline for the resolution of their cases. Additionally, the emphasis on documentation and evidence will likely lead to more robust and defensible notices.

Tax professionals and chartered accountants should familiarize themselves with these new guidelines to effectively advise their clients and ensure compliance. Staying updated with these changes is crucial for avoiding potential pitfalls and taking advantage of the safeguards introduced by the CBDT.
