New Delhi, September 25

The Income Tax Department on Friday launched “Faceless Income Tax Appeals’’ under which all IT appeals will be finalised in a faceless manner under the exception of those relating to serious frauds and major tax evasion.

Under Faceless Appeals, there will be no physical interface from e-allocation of appeal, e-communication of notice, e-verification and e-communication of the appellate order. There will be between the taxpayers or their counsels and the Income Tax Department. The taxpayers can make submissions from the comfort of their home and save their time and resources.

The system will allocate cases through Data Analytics and AI with central issuance of notices each of which will have a Document Identification Number (DIN). While the draft appellate order will be prepared in one city, it will be reviewed in some other city. “The new system will also be instrumental in imparting greater efficiency, transparency and accountability in the functioning of the IT Department,’’ said an official release.

As per data with CBDT, there is a pendency of almost 4.6 lakh appeals of which 4.05 lakh will be handled under the faceless appeal mechanism.
