The income tax return filing website will not be available for taxpayers for at least six days, starting from Tuesday. Employee Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) earlier asked the subscribers to link their provident fund accounts to the Aadhaar card from June 1. From new income tax filing online portal to costlier flight tickets, here’s a list of changes that will come into effect this month
In a bid to make income tax return filing more user-friendly and easier, the tax department is all set to launch a new website on June 7. To migrate all the activities from the previous site to the new one, the income tax e-filing portal www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in will remain shut for the taxpayers from June 1 to June 6. “We are excited to be moving to the new e-Filing portal from 7th June, 2021 onwards. The new portal, designed to be more user friendly, will have several new features and enhancements. Stay Tuned!” the Income Tax department said earlier.
PF rule change:
The retirement body had earlier asked the users to link their provident fund accounts to the Aadhaar cards by June. If members do not verify their PF accounts with Aadhaar cards June 1, their EPF contributions may be stopped crediting into the accounts. It must be noted that Universal Account Number (UAN) also needs to be linked to your Aadhaar accounts.
