The Taxpayer Charter aims to provide fair, courteous, and reasonable treatment to the taxpayers while expecting the taxpayer to be honest and compliant. In the new platform, the Form 26AS has been revamped into a single statement that summarises all tax-related information, which would help taxpayers to e-file income tax returns. It also gets a feature “wizard-based form with pre-filling” that will ensure convenient and accurate filing of return without hassle.
