Tax liability on the Source of Investment

In the realm of tax compliance, understanding the origins of investments is paramount, especially when they involve cash transactions. The Income Tax Act mandates that any unexplained investment is deemed income for the financial year under sections 69 and 69B, necessitating the filing of Income Tax Returns (ITRs). Additionally, investments with potential future income require not only the declaration of the investment itself but also any income generated from it.

When taxpayers encounter verification issues from the Income Tax Department (ITD), prompt action is crucial. Responses to such issues must be submitted online via the compliance portal.

These verification issues often arise through SMS, calls, or emails and can stem from various reasons:
  1. Non-filing of ITR, potentially indicating pending tax liabilities for the assessment year.
  2. Discrepancies between the details provided by taxpayers and the information received by the ITD for the assessment year.
  3. Reporting of significant transactions during the financial year that deviate from the taxpayer’s profile, raising red flags.

To navigate these challenges effectively, taxpayers must be proactive in addressing verification issues and ensuring accurate reporting of investments and income. By adhering to tax regulations and promptly responding to ITD communications, taxpayers can uphold compliance and foster a transparent tax environment.
