    Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch the platform for Transparent Taxation – Honoring the Honest through video conferencing today. This platform will further carry forward the journey of direct tax reforms.

     The Central Board of Direct Taxes, CBDT has carried out several major tax reforms in direct taxes in recent years.

    Last year, the Corporate Tax rates were reduced from 30 per cent to 22 per cent and for new manufacturing units the rates were reduced to 15 per cent. Dividend distribution Tax was also abolished.

    Sources reports that the event will be witnessed by various Chambers of Commerce, Trade Associations, Chartered Accountant’s associations and also eminent taxpayers, apart from the officers and officials of Income Tax Department. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Minister of State for Finance Anurag Singh Thakur will be present on the occasion.

    AIR correspondent reports, several initiatives have been taken by the CBDT for bringing in efficiency and transparency in the functioning of the IT Department.

    This includes bringing more transparency in official communication through the newly introduced Document Identification Number, wherein every communication of the Department would carry a computer generated unique document identification number.

    The focus of the tax reforms has also been on reduction in tax rates and on simplification of direct tax laws. With a view to provide for resolution of pending tax disputes the IT Department also brought out the Direct Tax ‘Vivad se Vishwas Act, 2020’ under which declarations for settling disputes are being filed currently.

    To effectively reduce taxpayer grievances and litigation, the monetary thresholds for filing of departmental appeals in various appellate Courts have been raised. Several measures have also been taken to promote digital transactions and electronic modes of payment.
