Pay tax electronically, if your 4th Digit of PAN is "C" & Taxpayers know your Rights


As CBDT mandated electronic payment of tax by Company & a person (other than a company), to whom provisions of Section 44AB are applicable [hereinafter collectively referred as "Taxpayers"], w.e.f. 1.4.2008, RBI has notified RBI/2007-08/280 DGBA.GAD. No. H. 10875 / 42.01.038/ 2007-08, by which, the banks shall not accept physical challans from such assessees across the counter.

You are a Corporate Assessee, so your 4th digit in the PAN is "C" and yes, pay tax only through electronic payment facility. The responsibility of making e- payment rests primarily with the taxpayer. Hence, the word of taxpayers should be taken as final.

Taxpayers, know your rights,

1. the acknowledgement for e-payment should be made available immediately on screen by the bank concerned. [check out your immediate acknowledgement]

2. the transaction id of e-payment should be reflected in the bank's statement. [check your bank statement for Transaction-Id]

3. each bank should prominently display on its e-payment gateway page, the official /s to be contacted in case the taxpayer faces any difficulty in making the payment, completing the e-transaction, generating the counterfoil etc. [feel free to contact the banking official for doubts]

4. also, banks are mandated to give the Income Tax Department and NSDL, a list of officials with contact particulars, to be contacted if required for any problems faced by ITD or taxpayers. [find out the name & contact details of your official from the list]

Keep payin electronically...Vj
