The Income Tax Department has asked taxpayers, who file ITRs and conduct other I-T businesses online, to update their profiles and vital details on the official e-filing portal to ensure an “effective communication” between the two.

The department today issued an advisory asking taxpayers to furnish their latest information such as personal and secondary e-mail and mobile phone numbers, address and bank account details.

These details will be verified and processed after the taxpayer is sent a One-Time Password (OTP) on e-mail and through SMS over the phone.

“New registration process to facilitate effective communication between the taxpayer and the department is enabled. The existing e-filing users are required to update their profile by logging into e-filing account. Users who have registered already and not activated have to register again,” the advisory said.

The updated information, a senior official said, is being sought to ensure that a communication sent to a taxpayer reaches him without fail and in good time.

“A taxpayer can do any business using his or her personal e-filing account only after updating the details,” he said.

Taxpayers can access their personal e-filing accounts at https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/.
