    Default Income Tax Refund


    It is more than a month since I wrote an application (Please see the attachment) to
    Assistant Commissioner of Income Tax
    Salary Range - VI
    121, Uttamar Gandhi Salai
    Nungambakkam
    Chennai

    complaining non-receipt of refund order, but of no use. Now I wish to use RTI. Could you please
    (1) Give the exact details (including specific address) of whom to approach. (OR where I can locate the details).
    (2) Let me know whether the information I am seeking - Is it on this complaint OR Is it on the refund orders.

    Thanks in advance.

    Suresh,

    You can now file a RTI application with a CPIO of the Income Tax department regarding the follow up on your above letter.

    The RTI application can be addressed to the relevant CPIO as listed on the CPIO/CAPIO link available at the top of the following page:

    http://www.incometaxindia.gov.in/cci...us_Display.asp

    The Income tax department has designated ALL assessing officers as CPIO's. You can therefore also address your RTI application to your assessing officer (maybe he is the same as the one to whom you addressed your initial letter). Just ask for :

    1. Day to day progress of your letter mentioned above
    2. Which officers have seen the letter and what action has been taken
    3. What are the norms of the department to reply to taxpayers letters/communication
    4. By when will you get the refunds

    Your RTI application has to be accompanied by a IPO of Rs. 10.00 payable to "Accounts Officer".

    For help and guidance in drafting a application, fees, mode of payment, how to submit etc., please visit the "Guide" segment of the portal available here:

    Karira,

    Thanks a lot for your inputs.

    I have one additional problem -
    I got the attached Word document at itax. How to do I pick the right CPIO? I belong to Salary Range - VI. Is it Commissioner of Income tax, Chennai - VI (sl no. 16)?

    Is the 'payable to' always "Accounts Officer", irrespective of CPIO?

    Thanks & Regards.

    Suresh,

    These days, the Income Tax department has designated ALL assessing officers as CPIO.
    Therefore you can file your RTI application with the assessing officer of your ward/circle (where you filed the IT return).

    IPO can be always to "Accounts Officer".

    I have received a communication which says
    QUOTE BEGINS
    ... a sum of Rs.10/= has to be deposited into the Government of India account. However, a banker's pay order favouring the Accounts Officer, Income Tax Dept., Govt. of India is seen enclosed with your application. Since your application is not in order the undersigned expresses his inability to consider your application as a valid one... You may file a fresh application...
    QUOTE ENDS

    Could you please let me know what went wrong. I am not able to buy IPO in any of the Post Offices nearby. Hence I went the Bankers Pay Order route.

    Thanks & Regards.

    Thanks & Regards.
    This PIO is trying to act smart and needs to be taken to the cleaners.
    I want to help you in drafting a full proof first appeal.
    Is it possible to scan FULL copies of your application, the copy of your BC and the PIO's reply and upload them here.
    This will help me in making a good and water tight First Appeal !

    Suresh,

    Attached is a First Appeal specifically for your matter.

    Just check the details given (numbers etc.), fill up the blanks, check spellings/punctuation/grammar and submit it to the First Appellate Authority.

    If you want to be even tougher on this CPIO (i think you should !), then please let me know and I will draft a "special" RTI application only for him.
