Have you checked your Outstanding Income Tax Demand appearing in e-Filing portal?

Recently one of my friends was shocked to see outstanding income tax demand appearing in e-Filing portal of the income tax department, though according to him, entire tax dues are paid.   

‘Oh Mind, Relax please!’ is the title of a book written by Swami Sukhabodhananda. If you are an income tax assessee and even if you have filed your return up to date, we must say that ‘Oh mind, don’t relax please! Once the return is filed, you may say “Yes, it’s done for this year’ isn’t it? Sorry, you may have to do some more homework! When you have time, just login to your account in income tax e-filing portal and see whether any outstanding income tax demand is appearing in your account! 

So, my first reaction to him was ‘Don’t worry’ the department is updating the software and there may be errors from their end too.

(Read: How to file online rectification of income Tax Application u/s 154 of Income Tax act 1956)

When you look at e-portal, it may appear as under 

Responce to outstanding Income Tax demand

 

The tax demand may arise on account of many simple reasons. Say for example, while filing the return you would have wrongly / not fed the right information or the department would not have considered the rectification filed by you u/s 154 for the previous assessment years. 

Now that the Income Tax e-portal is becoming more and more user-friendly, they are enabling more features which will help the taxpayers to rectify the mistakes online. 

How to check outstanding Income tax demand amount in the e-Filing portal? 

Login to your account in income tax e-portal and check “My Pending Actions” in the dashboard. 

Step by step procedure to handle outstanding demand – 

Ascertain the nature of Income Tax Demand: First and for most thing, you have to ascertain the reason for raising demand. You will get the information from Intimation received u/s 143(1) of Income tax Act.

If you have not received intimation u/s 143(1) you can visit Income Tax E-Filing Website and request for re-sending of Intimation u/s 143(1) / u/s 154 .

Pay Undisputed Tax: If the department is right in raising the tax demand, simply pay it!  (Note: If you won’t pay, then department will adjust the outstanding dues against refunds, if any)

Rectify Mistake apparent on record: If you are not satisfied about the demand amount, you have the option of filing rectification application seeking rectification of mistake in the order passed by CPC/AO.

File Revised Return if required: In case demand rising by the department is due to incorrect filling of data, go ahead and file a revised return. Fresh/additional claim of deduction under chapter VIA or loss cannot be accepted in rectification. In such cases you can file revised return. 

Submit response to Outstanding Tax Demand 

After following above steps ie after payment of undisputed tax demand and filing rectification/revised return where ever required, you can submit your response to outstanding tax demand.

The detailed process to submit the response to Outstanding Tax Demand is as below:

    1. Login to www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in and check Refund/Demand status menu.
    1. If there is any outstanding tax demand, the “Response to Outstanding Tax Demand” will appear showing demand amount along with A.Y. for which demand exists.
    1. You can submit your response by selecting correct option. Option available is – 1. Demand is correct 2. Demand is partially correct and 3. Disagree with demand.
    1. If you select demand is correct then you cannot disagree with the demand letter.
    1. If you select other options i.e. demand is partially correct or disagree with demand, you will have to provide reasons for exercising the option along with documentary evidence.
    1. Based on the reason selected, the assessee needs to provide additional information as below
    • Demand Paid:  BSR Code, date of payment, serial no, Amount. If challan doesn’t have serial no you will have to upload challan.
    • Demand already reduced by rectification/Revision/Appeal: Upload rectification order passed by AO and provide information on date of order, pending demand amount after rectification, etc.
    • Rectification / Revised Return filed at CPC: If you have filed rectification for the demand amount, provide acknowledgement No of rectification application filed online. In case if you have filed revised return, you need to provide e-Filed acknowledgement No of the revised return.
    • Rectification filed with AO: If you have filed rectification application manually to the jurisdictional assessing officer, provide date of filing application.
    1. Once assessee submits the response, transaction id will get generated which can be viewed later.
    1.  Other Points:
    • For the demand against which there is “No Submit response option” available such demand is already confirmed by the Assessing Officer. You have to contact your Jurisdictional Assessing officer for rectification if needed.

Is it necessary to respond to the outstanding demand appearing in e-Filing Portal?

Yes, if you fail to submit response to any of the demand appearing in e-Filing portal, subsequent refund if any due to you will be adjusted against outstanding demand amount. Further department may initiate proceedings to recover the demand amount.

You can download, Income tax department manual on Response to Outstanding Tax Demand, to know detailed process of submitting the response to outstanding tax demand.

    There was a demand notice in the efiling webpage for Ay 201-11. obviously they have misplaced my my income tax return. After some reminde I got a phone call asking me to send copy of return. I have sent them. It is six month since I have sent the copy of the return. In spite of repeated reminders,so far it appears no response and the demand continues in the efiling webpage. I do not like to appeal to higher authorities as the the AO may be displeased. I am a very old man and I would like to dispose this case in any case before my death.

  • Debasish Ray Chawdhuri

    What should go in the remarks field while rectification request is done for partially correct and e-filed rectification request? Also I lost my TDS certificates and they are unobtainable because I switched jobs. Can I submit response without uploading anything?

  • simplifiedlaws

    @r@r_jha:disqus

    You don’t need to file revised return

  • simplifiedlaws

    Hello @vishalkumarmehta:disqus
    Revised income tax return can be filed by an assessee any time before the expiry of one year from the end of the relevant assessment year. For the asst year 2014-15 you have time till 31st March 2016 for filing revised return.

    I suggest you to file revised return by considering deduction u/s 80C. If you wish our help, you can send information to team@simplifiedlaws.com

  • simplifiedlaws

    You don’t have to file revised return or rectification application if you have paid outstanding demand by selecting code 400 in the challan. Amount will get deleted after two or three days of making payment from the portal

  • Sheikh Zakir

    I filed my original ITR for 15-16 on 22.08.2015 and got a refund of 50,200. But after receiving refund I noted some mistake in my original return, so I filed a revised return submitted it and e-verified also . According to revised return I should have got a refund of Rs. 30,200 instead of 50,200 i.e I have received an extra refund of Rs. 20,000. What should I do? Should I wait for a demand from Income Tax Deptt. for extra amount refunded by them or should I pay Rs. 20,000 as self assessment tax? Please advice soon

  • SUBHASH CHANDRA

    Dear Sir,
    On filing my returns for AY 2015-16, I received a communication from CPC, Bengaluru under section 245 that my return has been processed and has resulted in some refund.
    But, it shall be adjusted against ‘out standing demands of Rs1120 and Rs 800′ for the AY 2010-11 and 2011-12 under section 154 and 1431a respectively uploaded by jurisdictional AO which is ITO W-4, Panchkula.
    I never received any notice / intimation either from ITO or CPC , Begaluru in this regard nor do I know how these outstanding amount have been arrived at.
    I checked up Form 26AS for these years but there is no outstanding amount indicated therein.
    I also submitted request at Income Tax Website for supplying intimation under the relevant sections for these AYs but they also indicated that there is no such information
    I shall be thankful to you if you can guide me to enable me get the required information and how to proceed further.
    Should not be there any time limit to raise demands for previous years and hold processing of returns/refunds for the current year on account of such outstanding demands which have not even been intimated.

    • simplifiedlaws

      You have to approach your jurisdictional assessing officer ITO W-4, Panchikula, to find out reason for demand and file rectification application u/s 154 along with necessary document in support of your claim, if demand raised by income tax department is incorrect

  • Pankaj Bisht

    I contacted my AO regarding an outstanding demand for previous AY 2010-11 along with the documentary proofs like my treasury salary slip, form-16 issued by DDO, ITR-V for return filed by me for the said AY 2010-11,but I was told to contact my DDO regarding this or to fulfill the demand by depositing the tax required. What should be done now when the tax is duly deposited and there is no dues on my side? Whether non-filing of form24q for the ay 2010-11 by my DDO may be the reason for this outstanding demand? If yes then who is liable for penalty?

  • ruchi

    i have filed a ITR-1 SAHAJ for getting the refund from the tax payable. i hve filled the form with all the details of advance tax paid with challan no., bsr code , etc and also recieved a intimation. the intimation is showing the net outstanding tax payable as the previous tax which should be deducted from the advance tax paid for the refund.I have submitted the response to the outstanding demand as demand is correct. Had I chosen the correct option??..Is getting a outstanding demand in the case of any refund is completely okay??…plz reply …:(

  • Mustafa

    Hi There, I have a query regarding the outstanding income tax demand raised by AO for the A.Y. 2012-13. Recently I have submitted my returns thru efiling. When I was checking for the refund status under my pending actions I can see one outstanding demand. For which I didn’t get any intimation also I have paid the tax for that financial year thru a tax assistant. Now when I am trying to resend the intimation request, it is saying no intimation requests for that year.Please see below screen shots. Kindly guide me how to proceed further.

    • simplifiedlaws

      Your return is processed by Assessing officer not by CPC. You have to visit your jurisdictional assessing officer to find out the reason for the demand, there after your can file manual rectification application to AO by providing all supporting document for your claim.

  • Jayesh

    Hi, I have demand for AY2011-12, this is for whole tax amount i had paid through my employer (TDS) and i had filed ITR correctly. Even tax amount is correctly reflecting in online Form26AS.
    So, can some one help me to understand why such tax credit is not been provided to me when its already correctly mentioned in my respective ITR, as well as its showing correctly on Form26AS?
    Apart, subject demand is now with AO, but also i am surprised, till last year it wasnt notified to me not any trace of communication available in Incometax website/account. I came to know about same only when last years refund was debited against this outstanding demand & it was mentioned in my refund statement. I had submitted my dis-agreement through portal but yet no feedback from AO.
    pls. advice what to do??

  • vardhan

    Hi,

    Need help please:

    I have not got clarified on further action for my demand notice on FY2014-2015.
    I have submitted Rectification request using link in the portal, got successully with Transaction acknowledgement.
    Now
    to proceed with furrther on Tax Demand notice- response, there are
    multiple options in “Disagree Demand Notice”. Is it otherwise, I need to
    re-submit revised ITR again? and attach the latest e-file ack here? or
    if I upload above rectification-Transaction ID snapshot file is fine?

  • Kumar Lal

    I need help!

    AY 14 ( financial
    year 2013-2014). I receive mail from IT department “Demand Status at CPC as on
    31-07-2015” for demand amount Rs 31130.00. For this I updated “Response to
    outstanding tax Demand” as “Demand partially correct”. In that case I identified
    that I have to pay Rs. 1310.00 (total demand Rs. 31130.00 , already paid Rs. 29820.00,
    reaming amount 1310.00). The same I updated in my Response in tax website.

    Again, Aug’15, I received “Intimation under section 245 of
    Income Tax Act, 1961” for the same demand amount Rs. 31130.00. this time they
    update The Outstanding demand pertains to the AY #2014 and Assessment
    Year: 2015-16.

    My confusion is :

    I am ready to pay that reaming amount of rs 1310.00 ( challan 280) but what I have to do after
    that payment .

    Ø For which financial year?

    Ø Which form I have to submit to IT again, is there any rectification / revised IT
    return form? Can I pay the balance amount and upload revised return form once
    again for FY 2013 -2014?

    Ø And how I have to response on this section 245 request, because I already responded once in my previous demand.

    Your advice would be highly appreciated. Please advice.

  • Jayabal

    Hello,

    I filed for income tax return recently. I had filed for a refund of a certain amount that was wrongly deducted as senior citizen privileges were not taken into account . Now I have an outstanding demand record in my efiling account. The corresponding mailer informs that “Your return has been processed at CPC and the same has resulted in refund. The refund so determined will be adjusted against the outstanding demand as shown in “Outstanding Demand table” annexed herewith.”

    I am unsure how to take this forward. Will the amount be credited to my account or will it be deducted from the next years income tax.

    Any help is appreciated.

  • Vamcr Garlapati

    Hello, i have a question regarding the outstanding tax demand. when i was filing for the first time for 2014-2015, filed my returns wrongly. so after two months i realized and filled again as revised. But when i recently checked , i am seeing my outstanding tax demand as 9700. so whatever the income i have declared in the revised has not reflected and the amount declared in the original is refelected asking me to pay 9700, how can this be rectified. kindly reply

    • simplifiedlaws

      If you file revised return before processing of original return, CPC will process revised return. Please check intimation received u/s 143(1) of income tax Act to find our reason for demand. If you don’t find intimation, you can file online request for resending intimation.

      • Vamcr Garlapati

        Thanks for the reply, checked the intimation received , the file shows that tax was due to the incorrect tax i have filed in the original .i have requested for resending intimation as well.

  • Rahul

    There is an outstanding demand listed in my income tax e filling account for AY 2011-12 even if I have paid all the taxes and the same is reflecting in 26AS also. I disagree with demand and submitted the response on the portal that I disagree, but the demand is not getting removed and also I am not getting any response from the income tax department. Please suggest, how to resolve this.

    • simplifiedlaws

      Hollo Rahul

      Just disagree with demand and submit the response is not sufficient to remove outstanding demand. First you need to identify reason for the demand and file rectification application u/s 154 of income tax act. Only after filing rectification application you can submit online response.

  • Balachander R

    Hi, I recently logged into e-portal and say a demand raised for 29000. This demand was raised in Aug 2008. I recall that this should be for the year that I did not file my returns due to health issue and was job less. So no form 16 from any employer. Not that the demand is raised and I am seeing it for the first time. What needs to be done? Your advise in this regard will be highly appreciated. Thanks!

    • simplifiedlaws

      Hello Balachander

      Kindly check Assessment year for which demand is raised. There can’t be any tax demand for the year in which return is not filed.

    I have a question regarding the outstanding tax demand. For A.Y. 2012-13 i found a demand for 2440 rupees which I paid in 2013 year. However now i realised that I should select “400 – Tax on Regular Assessment” where as that time I selected “300 – Tax on Self Assesment” for “Type Of Payment”. Please let me know what I should do now to correct the same as it is still appearing in my Outstanding amount. Thank you.

    • simplifiedlaws

      You have option to submit response to income tax demand. Select demand in incorrect and upload copy of tax paid challan.

      • Kusuma B

        Yes, i selected that the demand is incorrect and uploaded the challan. But there is no response for that.

    Hi, I have received a demand under section 143(1) on 15/07/2015 for Rs 2200 (AY 2014-15). This is due to a tax credit mismatch for the same AY 2014-15. Do I have to deposit any interest on this demand even if I deposit the demand within 30 days of notice date?

    If yes then from which date do I need to calculate the interest?

  • Kapoor

    I received Demand Notice from CPC for FY 12-13 and i paid INR 1700 , after 2 months received another Demand for Rs 4900 same was also paid by me. Now third demand of INR 20000 is raided for same financial year, which i am not finding correct. I am a salaried person and TDS is deducted by my employer , i paid self assessment tax on my income from other sources i.e Interest on my FDs etc.
    Would like to know

    1. Whom should i contact for my issue resolution
    2. Is there a limit of demands raised by CPC for one Single year

    • simplifiedlaws

      There can’t be two or more demand amount for the same assessment year unless you filed rectification return and same is processed with fresh demand.

      If you don’t have intimation, you can make request for intimation for the assessment year for which demand exists. For online request Log Into income tax ePortal, go to the section My Account > Request for intimation u/s 143(1)/154.

      If you need professional assistance you can send all the details to team@simplifiedlaws.com

  • fname lname

    I am seeing IT demand amount in e-portal = 55,000/- for an assessment year 2008-09. Strange things are,
    1. My taxable income was only around 1LAC at that time.
    2. This is raised in 2010
    3. Didn’t get any notifications since 2010 about it

    Why common people like us are facing such issues? and which may lead to trouble and deep trouble to visit AO offices for honest people.

    Your advise will be highly appreciated.

  • Gaurav

    Hello
    I got notice 245 for the assessment year 2012-13 now.
    The problem is selection of wrong challan Major head(0024 instead of 0021) , while I was paying the self assessment tax.
    That was the difference in 143/1 intimation also.
    Now I dont know how should I file online rectification for the same, Please help

    • simplifiedlaws

      Selection of Major head 0024 or 0021 may not be the issue of raising tax demand. Kindly check details of BSR Code, Challan Sl No, Amounts and Asst year in Form 26AS and compare the same with the Income tax return filed. If you found any discrepancy file rectification return.

      • Gaurav

            I too had the same problem. I went to the Income Tax office in Chennai, they had asked to check with the Bank, and when I approached the bank they have asked to check with Income Tax office. Both are making me to roam around and have not got any solution, even after paying the tax I am gettng penalised because of a simple mistake of selecting incorrect header and that too I got mislead as I was payng additioanl tax for the interest coming from the Fixed Deposits.

  • rao

    I have filed returns online during AY 2009-10 & 2010-11. CPC has not processed it as some refund was there, hence transferred to AO. I did not get any notice from the AO. But now, it is appearing that there is some tax demand for the both the assessment years. I have submitted for rectification in the site and got a message that rectification rights with AO.

  • Shashi Bhushan

    I am in receipt of intimation under section 143(10 which shows a demand of Rs. 1710. I agree with
    the demand and i have accepted it online on the website. Website also says that if you accept the demand, it will adjusted against any refund in future. As of now i don’t have any refund outstanding.

    Query is, after accepting the demand online, do i still need to pay the demand? Or I need not do anything as it will be adjusted by them automatically against any future refund.

    Second query is, irrespective of answer to above query, let’s say i don’t pay the demand even after accepting it. Will interest continue to be levied on that? Or acceptance of demand itself is good enough and no further interest will be levied?

    • simplifiedlaws

      If the department is right in raising the tax demand, simply pay it! If you won’t pay, then department will adjust the outstanding dues against refunds, if any,cdue to you in the subsequent years. If the demand amount is not paid within 30 days of raising demand, you are liable to pay simple interest at 1% for every month or part of a month till the date of payment.

      Many of our client received refund within 10 days from the date of submitting online response. Please wait for some time. It seems CPC has stopped processing refund for the time being. If it is true they may resume sending refund after March end.

      • Gopan

        Thank You. But I not really worried about the refund. But what happens to the outstanding demand, It will still be shown and rectification still lies with the AO. Any idea what happens to that and how long it will take to resolve this problem? My 2014 returns are kept on hold because of this

        • simplifiedlaws

          Have you made tax payment by ticking code 400 ie tax on regular assessment.
          If tax demand is determined by Tax department and if you agree for the demand, you have to pay tax by selecting correct assessment year along with type of payment as tax on regular assessment. If you do so demand will automatically get deleted from the system within a day or two.

          • Gopan

            No I disagreed with the demand. The demand which is claimed is already paid as self assessed income during 2011 and is shown as credited in form 26 AS. I have filed a rectification with AO. From November 2014 there is no response from AO. Any advice on what I should do next

          • simplifiedlaws

            In case of online rectification application, CPC will process it within one or two month. If you have filed manual rectification application with concerned AO, It is advisable to meet AO in person to get it rectified.

          • Gopan

            I met the AO who directed me to the Income tax commissioner. He just took all the papers and gave an acknowledgement and asked me to forget about this. If there any change it will be informed. But its been more than 2 months and no response from anyone. What am I supposed to do next?Just keep on waiting or should I do something

  • Arpit

    I received an outstanding demand for the AY 2008-09 which is more than 5 years back. I am not able to get details of this demand on the website and neither can I submit the request for resend of intimation request. Since I cannot see the details I am not sure how to register disagreement with this demand. What should I do?

    • Satya

      I have also received a very old demand for AY 2006-07 and recently viewed it on the portal Dashboard. There was not taxable return for that year and I filed my manual return with the AO. This demand is raised by AO only and now it is showing that the assessing right is with AO. CPC has raised a 245 notice. I have a TDS refund for 2014-15 and 2015-16, what should I do now.

  • Surender

    i had paid the Demand on 15 Jan 2015 but it’s not yet updated on the Income Tax Site and is still showing Demand Status as my action item.
    How many days does it take to update the payments?
    Do I have any further action on this?

  • Niraj

    I have a query on not allowing expenses claimed u/s 40a.

    I got intimation from CPC. On verification i found out that income from business was wrongly computed u/s 143(1) due to which there was a tax demand, On further verification I found out that difference in the business income was due to not allowing an amount of Rs. 60000/- claimed u/s 40a of the income tax ACt on the basis of Actual TDS payment which was disallowed earlier year.

    I filed online rectification, but same was again processed without considering claim made u/s 40a. Can you please suggest how to rectify the mistake committed by CPC

    • simplifiedlaws

      Hi Niraj

      Please check Schedule “Other Information” (PART A- OI) in your ITR return whether you have filled column ” Any amount disallowed under section 40 in any preceding year but allowable during the Previous year. Please note that CPC doesn’t consider amount in the return without filling all the details in all the schedule. This may be the reason for not considering your claim.

      IF so. fill all the schedules and submit online rectification under section 154 of income tax Act along with upload corrected xml file.

  • Srikanth

    I received a letter to pay a demand of Rs.1000/- in November 2014, which I have paid online (400 Challan). This got reflected in the Form 26AS too. A week ago, there was Respond to Outstanding Demand under pending actions. It was for the same amount. I submitted choosing the Demand is correct option. However, later I realized that I had to select Disagree with Demand and provide the demand paid details. Please advise what is the next action I need to take to rectify this issue.

    • admin

      Try again with respond to Outstanding demand by selecting correct option. You may also contact CPC helpline No. 1800 425 2229 to address your query. They will certainly help you in resolving issue and delete the demand.

        Kindly suggest what further action is required to remove the demand

    Demand raised date is shown as17/11/10, have not received any intimation u/s 1431 a till now. Wrote to AO to send me intimation copy on 10 Nov, 14 but no response till now. My query:

    • simplifiedlaws

      First verify your outstanding tax demand appearing in the e-filing portal and To check demand Visit dashboard-> My Pending Action-> Check whether demand determined by CPC or AO.

      If demand is determined by CPC, submit online request for intimation u/s 143(1) and verify nature of demand after receiving the intimation and file online rectification if demand is incorrect..

      In case your demand is determined by AO, It is advisable to meet Jurisdictional AO to ascertain nature of demand and filing rectification application along with required documents.

      Rectification application can be filed within 4 year form the date of passing order. In case assessing officer file to respond, you have an option to go for income tax ombudsmen. To know more visit http://www.simplifiedlaws.com/do-you-know-about-income-tax-ombudsman/
