The income tax department of India earlier informed about this new development on its Twitter handle, saying income tax e-filing portal 2.0 will have an all-new mobile app also.
The term ‘aaykar’ means taxpayer and ‘setu’ means bridge. The app acts as a bridge between the government and the taxpayer. It is a free app available for android users on the Google Play Store. You install the app and choose to register your mobile number with the app. Also, you can link your 12-digit Aadhaar and 10-digit PAN to your account. The app serves as a guide to the taxpayer.
The app enables taxpayers to understand the process, know the utilities available at the income tax website and file tax for themselves instead of relying on others for help. Also, the app is simple to use for the convenience of taxpayers of all classes and age.
