Income tax return forms

The notice dated July 24, 2017, apparently related to AY 2016-17. You have submitted the details for FY 2016-17 irrelevant to AY 2017- 18. As a part of e-governance initiative to facilitate conduct of assessment proceedings electronically, the income-tax department has launched the “e-proceeding“ facility wherein assessee will be able to submit the response along with the attachments by uploading the same on the e-filing por tal.

However, in cases where the assessee has received the notice asking him to electronically file the response, the e-proceedings menu is not activated on the e-filing portal, it is advisable that the assessee shall approach the assessing officer with the response and the supporting documents for AY 2016-17 to avoid non-compliance on the date of hearing. The assessee may also electronically file his response once the e-proceedings menu is activated.
