“In order to enhance taxpayer experience and keep pace with new technology, the Income Tax Department has revamped its National website ‘www.Incometaxindia.Gov.In’ with a user-friendly interface, value-added features, and new modules,” the CBDT said in a statement.
The revamped website has been redesigned with a mobile-responsive layout.
