Once a registered user logs in to the portal, the dashboard would show details of e-proceedings, response to outstanding demands, if any, and also annual information statement under the ‘pending actions’ tab.
The grievance menu allows taxpayers to submit any grievance and also view previously submitted ones.
Also, taxpayers can view, edit and update their personal details under ‘my profile’ menu.
The portal would also list out what detail the taxpayer needs to fill up to ensure profile completion.
It has also detailed FAQs and videos to help users to navigate through the portal.
