PRESS RELEASE ON E-FILING PORTAL
This is to inform the esteemed taxpayers that looking to the overwhelming response from the taxpayers and growth of e-filing, a new e-filing project was conceptualized in order to take the e-services to the next generation.
Under the new e-filing setup not only the ITR forms but also other income tax forms are proposed to be made available for electronic filing along with other web enabled services.
In order to make the new portal live, the migration of data from the old set up to the new set up is in process. Due to this e-filing services to the taxpayers through the portal https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in will not be available from 3rd November to 8th November, 2012.
The e-filing service will resume with various new additional services like multiple mode of e-filing of returns: help desk through call centre and e-mail support, provision of online forms, pre-filing of data in forms, and availability of offline e-forms.
