Now Appeals Before Commissioner of Income-tax Appeals to be filed Electronically

CBDT has taken a big step in digitizing the functions of the the income-tax department which will remove human interface, reduce paperwork and decrease the transaction cost for the taxpayer by making efiling of appeals before the Commissioner of Income-tax (Appeals) mandatory for persons who are required to efile their return of income.

As per the press release issued by the CBDT, existing Form 35 will be replaced and the new form is claimed to be more structured, objective, systematic, and aligned with the current provisions of the Income-tax Act.
