In one of the recent developments, it is proposed by the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) (released for public comments) to create a mechanism for self-reporting of estimates of current income, tax payments and advance tax liability by certain taxpayers viz. companies and tax audit cases, on voluntary compliance basis.
Accordingly, in exercise of the powers conferred by section 295 of the Income-tax Act, 1961 (43 of 1961), an amendment of the Income-tax Rules, 1962 ("the Rules") is proposed for insertion of a new Rule 39A and Form No.28AA in the Rules. The comments and suggestions of stakeholders and general public on the said draft notification are invited by CBDT.
We trust you will find the newsflash useful.
