Income-tax department developing mobile app for filing returns

CBDT chairperson Anita Kapoor says there are some security related issues but those will be resolved soon

New Delhi: The income-tax department is developing a mobile app which can be used by users for filing their tax returns, a top finance ministry official said on Saturday.

“We are developing a mobile app which can be used by users for filing their income tax returns. There are some security related issues, which we will resolve soon," Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) chairperson Anita Kapoor said on Saturday.

Online filing of tax returns has caught up in a big way in recent years, while filings through mobile apps can make it even easier for the taxpayers.

Talking about direct tax collections, Kapoor said, “Collections are doing well and we are keeping our fingers crossed. The December collection of advance tax will actually give us a good idea." The government aims to collect 7.98 trillion as direct tax in the current fiscal year. PTI
