Faceless Tax Regime
Riya Rajayyan - Aug 21,2020
Tax appeals and assessment will now be ‘faceless’ in India from September 25. This means that the identity of the taxpayer and of the tax officer should have no bearing on issues of tax scrutiny. This new tax charter aims to reward honest taxpayers, improve transparency and efficiency in the bureaucracy. Taxpayers would not need to mention their high-value transactions in their income tax returns, said officials in the know of the matter, but added that broadening the scope of reporting financial transactions by third parties had become vital since taxation is moving towards a faceless approach.

But we are not here to talk about the absurd content of these news channels but rather the news that they leave out or deem as unimportant .
