The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has introduced ‘e-advance Rulings Scheme 2022’, enabling the taxpayers to file applications for advance ruling through email.
Under the scheme the taxpayers will get an appropriate opportunity to be heard through the video conferencing/video telephony hearings before the board for advance rulings. This scheme will benefit non-resident assesses in advance ruling proceedings.
Regarding this scheme, CBDT has clarified that there will be a random assignment of requests for rulings to the board through an automated allocation system as per the scheme. All communications between the income tax authorities/taxpayers and the board for advance rulings will be electronically by sending an email to the registered email address of the applicants or their authorised representatives.
Further, the applicants or their authorised representatives can file their response to an order or notice or other electronic communication under the scheme to the board for advance rulings through their registered email address.
