ITR Filing- What is Income tax Intimation Letter Under Section 143(1), Request for resenting

Once your ITR documentation has been processed, the Income Tax Department will notify you under Section 143 (1) of the Income Tax Act, letting you know if you owe any additional tax or if you are due a refund. The Department sends Income Tax Intimation notices to the tax filer’s registered email address under Section 143(1) of the Income Tax Act 1961. Furthermore, the Department sends an SMS alert to the tax filer informing them that the notification has been sent to their registered email address. The intimation notice specifies whether the taxpayer’s income tax calculation in the ITR corresponds to the Department’s calculation based on the information it has.

What is intimation under Section 143(1)?

Individuals must file income tax returns by July 31st of the assessment year. Once the return has been filed, it is processed by the tax department. Following receipt of notification from the department, various scenarios may arise as a result of incorrect TDS deduction from salary and under-reporting of income.

There are three possible outcomes. The first possibility is that no demand for income tax is made, leaving the assessee stress-free. The second possibility is that you will receive a tax refund. The third point is that there is a tax demand.

It is critical for the taxpayer to first identify the scenario and then correct the computation. For example, if TDS is not taken into account by the department, one can apply for it to be taken into account, reducing the tax liability. As a result, there are numerous permutations and combinations, and the response will differ from case to case.

What is in the tax intimation Letter?

Taxpayers should read the notification notice carefully. It contains information such as income, claimed deductions, and whether or not the calculation matches the department’s assessments.

If the taxpayer overpaid taxes, the refund may be included in the notification notice.
