54. ASSESSMENT / SCRUTINY – How Your File is Assessed / Scrutinised

Law and procedure for Assessment:

The salient features of the new assessment procedure are:

  1. The requirement of passing the assessment order in all cases where returns are filed, has been dispensed with. The matter now generally ends with the filing of return and issue of the Acknowledgement Slip.

  2. The Assessing Officer shall send intimation where any tax or interest is found payable by the assessee or the refund is due to the Assessee.

  3. Any tax or income found due on the returned income or any refund found payable shall be demanded from or granted to the assessee along with the intimation.

  1. Intimation should be sent within one year from the end of the financial year in which the return is filed. Consequently no tax or interest can be demanded after the expiry of such period.

  2. In cases where no amount is payable by the assessee or refund due to the assesses, the acknowledgement of the return shall be deemed to be intimation.

  3. Scrutiny assessments shall be carried out in certain cases selected by the Assessing Officer.
