The Income Tax Department has been receiving information about large value transactions through Annual Information Return (AIR) without a valid PAN.
In order to bring tax evaders under the tax net, the Income Tax department has sent letters request for linking of large value transactions to a valid PAN. These letters are sent to those individuals who have lorge value transactions such as a deposit of cash Rs. 10,00,000/- or more into savings account, Sale or purchase of property more than Rs. 30,00,000/- Investment in Mutual Fund of Rs. 2,00,000 or more etc.
Annual Information Report (AIR ) records the list of entities and taxpayers who have made such “high value financial transactions” during the particular financial year.
For the convenience of the parties to whom these letters are addressed, a new functionality on e-filing portal has been developed wherein they can own up transactions and provide structured response electronically.
This functionality is to facilitate the user to view and submit response to Non-PAN lorge value Transaction. Those who receive the letters can login into their e-filing website and link transaction with their PAN by quoting a Unique Transaction Sequence Number in the letter. The new functionality helps the user to confirm whether the transaction is related to his PAN or not.
What happens if I ignore notice received for Non-PAN Large Value Transactions?
Ignoring the IT letter and failing to link your transactions with PAN may lead to further trouble with the Income-tax authorities and If no response is electronically submitted within 15 days of receipt of this letter, appropriate proceedings under Income Tax Act, 1961 may be initiated. The Income Tax department will send you a formal notice, followed by summons requiring personal attendance to explain the position. Continue to ignore Income tax notice can also result in summons and penalty and in extreme cases the law also provides for imprisonment.
