To give relief to taxpayers during the coronavirus lockdown, the income tax department is issuing all pending income tax refunds up to 5 lakh now. In just one week, the taxman has already released 4,250 crore refunds to 10.2 lakh assesses.
In some cases the income tax department chooses to get a confirmation from the taxpayer by sending emails before processing the refund claim. Around 1.74 lakh such income tax assesses are yet to respond to the emails leading to a delay in processing of such claims.
