Prime Minister Narendra Modi believes that when the tax is taken from the common people, then it does not hurt and when the same money of the country reaches the citizens, then people should feel its use in their lives too. PM Modi said these things at the inauguration of Income Tax Tribunal Building in Cuttack. On this occasion, he said that now taxpayers do not have to wait for years for refunds.
New trend of trusting taxpayers
PM Modi said that whatever income tax return is being filed at this time, it is being trusted completely. Because of this, 99.75 percent of the returns that are being filed in the country are accepted without any objection. PM Modi considers this a big change in the tax system of the country.
Taxpayer rights have got legal recognition in India
PM Modi said that today India is among the few countries in the world where both the rights and duties of the taxpayer have been codified and given legal recognition. He believes that this has been a big step to build trust and transparency again between the taxpayer and the tax collector.
The journey from tax terrorism to tax transparency
Earlier, the biggest complaint of taxpayers was that there is an atmosphere of tax terrorism in the country, but now the situation has changed. PM Modi said that now this change of tax transparency has come from tax terrorism because now the government is increasing with the reform, performance and the use of transform. Rules and procedures are being improved and technology is being resorted to. The Prime Minister said that the government is demonstrating with clear intentions and clear intentions and is also transforming the thinking of the tax administration.
Increasing transparency in the system
PM Modi said that before independence, the relationship of tax payers and tax collectors was with the exploited and exploiters and even after independence, no efforts could be made to change it. But now the situation is changing. Taxpayers experience transparency when they get a refund within a few weeks or when old tax matters are resolved. Apart from this, the convenience of faceless appeal also gives the experience of tax transparency.
