Income Tax officials have expressed dismay and displeasure over what they termed as the ‘unethical practice' of some tax payers trying to claim exemption from I-T citing affliction of ‘terminal diseases' to their family members. They are even submitting fake medical certificates to substantiate their false claims, said P.S. Murthy, Deputy Commissioner, Income Tax, participating in a workshop on TDS, organised by the department at the SVU Senate Hall. The meet was inaugurated by the Joint Commission (I-T) R. Ramesh Kumar, Vijayawada. Murthy was also critical about some managements making it a practice to remit the I-T recovered from their staff only towards the end of the financial year, say in Feb., and said that it is clearly against the law which insists tax recovered should be remitted right from April every month. The department invited to the meeting as participants drawing and disbursing officers of the State and the Central government departments, representatives from the commercial banks, members from the local Chamber of Commerce and the Tirupati Tax Bar Association.
