The Income-Tax Officer,

Income Tax Department


Sub: Rectification of tax payable amount.
Dear Sir,

I have received a letter from your department, S.No.12345/78, according to which I have tax payments due for assessment year 2014-15 and 2015-16.

I was not aware that my tax affairs were not up to date. I would like to bring to your notice that there are some rectifications that are required to be made in this context so that the right action can be taken to resolve the matter.

For the assessment year 2014-15, I would like to bring to your notice that my income in this year was Rs.2,40,000 which falls under the slab of no tax as per the guidelines for that year. Therefore, I am not entitled to pay any tax for assessment year 2014-15. I have enclosed the copy of my ITR 2014-15 for your reference.

For the assessment year 2015-16, I was entitled for an income tax of Rs.2500, the payment of which was made on 31st July, 2016. I have enclosed the copy of the receipt along with the copy of my ITR 2015-16 for your reference.

As all my tax dues are cleared, I would like to request you to please remit the charges levied on the letter sent by your department. In case you require any further clarifications, please get in touch with me at 9865323212.

Yours sincerely,

Anurag Sharma

One thought on “Letter to Income Tax Department for Rectification

  1. This refers to CPC communication reference No CPC/1718/G14/201801280424621 DATED 28 .01.2018.

    My efforts to file “online rectification return” was not successful as above communication reference did not fit in the limited space provided the box.

    In my ITR I have wrongly typed TAN No of SBI Lingarajapuram as MUMS86160E whereas correct No is BLRS0199B. Due to this mismatch refund of IT to the tune of Rs.3958 is held up. Please release this. My PAN No is ACGPV7391F. The Assessment Year was 2017-18.

    With regards
