The 159th Income Tax Day i.e. Aaykar Diwas is being celebrated on 24th July, 2019 by the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) and all field offices.
Why 24th July?
- On 24th July 1860, Income Tax was introduced for the first time in India by Sir James Wilson to compensate for the losses incurred by the British regime during the first war of independence against British Rule.
The CBDT will also launch a “Kardaata e-Sahyog Abhiyaan” to assist and support taxpayers and other stakeholders in enabling them to e-file their returns and discharge other tax related obligations.
