What response for 144(1) from our side?

Hi @Vinay_S,

Notice u/s 144(1) is issued in the following cases:

  1. When ITR is not filed within due date by a taxpayer
  2. When a taxpayer fails to provide a response to an inquiry of AO (Assessing Officer) for filed ITR,
  3. When a taxpayer fails to provide a response to assessment notice for filing ITR.

Here, AO can assess the total income or loss of a taxpayer based on the information gathered by them. AO usually gives the taxpayer an opportunity to present their case and provide necessary documents. Hence response to 144(1) can be given after looking at the cause of notice and with supporting documents.

Hope this helps! You can connect with us here at Quicko.

Im very sorry it was 143(1)

143(1) is not a Notice but a communication received from the Income Tax Department(ITD). Once the assessee files the Income Tax Return, the ITD does a preliminary assessment. This includes:

  • Verifying arithmetical errors
  • Any incorrect claim in the return,
  • Difference in Tax Calculation,
  • Verification of tax payment

The letter basically matches the calculations in the Income Tax Return filed with the calculations computed by the Income Tax Department.

You can refer to this article for details: Understand Intimation u/s 143(1) and actions to be taken.
