The Central Board of Direct Taxes on January 22, 2019 has identified the non-filers through Non-filers Monitoring System (NMS) by using Data Analytics.  The data analysis has identified several potential non-filers who have carried out high value transactions in Financial Year 2017-18 but have still not filed Income Tax Return for Assessment Year 2018-19 (relating to Financial Year 2017-18).

The Department has enabled e-verification of these NMS cases to reduce the compliance cost for taxpayers by soliciting their response online. Taxpayers can access information related to their case from the ‘Compliance portal’ which has been accessible through the e-filing portal of the Department at The PAN holder should submit the response electronically on the Compliance Portal and keep a printout of the submitted response for record purposes. User Guide and FAQs are provided under the “Resources” menu on Compliance Portal.

Non-filers are requested to assess their tax liability for Assessment Year 2018-19 and file the Income Tax Returns (ITR) or submit online response within 21 days. If the explanation offered has found to be satisfactory, matters will be closed online. However, in cases where no return has been filed or no response has been received, initiation of proceedings under the Income-tax Act, 1961 will be considered.
